Nina has only said it might not work, no real reasons as to why. Other than from different lakes. Who says blacks and whites can't get along? Lol it'll work out I'm sure. There is a guy at the store that has had this same kind of set up for years. You just can't add fish after they get to a certain size. They all should be just fine.

But, i would like the list form over paragraph :)

More pics coming soon also!

blacks and whites ??? fish I hope you are speaking of because if not thats mighty ignorant


1.) and since they are all equally aggressive can I put to dovii males in the same tank or will they eventually kill one another to find out who is boss?

2.) she also told about the plecos eyes so yes she did tell you things

3.) did you see his tank yourself and was it the same exact setup size and was he making a sale or telling the truth hummm :whistle:


4.) yes different lakes is a reason and can be an issue but o well


5.) hey it might work I actually hope it does for you :)

6.) Ill just stick to my SA cichlids and wait for updates ;)

I have seen pictures of his tank, it is also a 75 The males do not care about the other species males. They care about their own females. I also know joe wouldn't do anything to make a sale if e didn't believe it would wrk. I hae seen him not sell fish to people because he knew they would be out a ton o money and time with dead fish.

If you feed them regularly and maintain good water conditions and the Pleco has a hiding place during the day and doesn't get bothered they will leave him alone.

Lol, and yes black and whites get along! They're the same people jut colors!! Same go for these guys. In y eyes. If they're all raised together on a non aggressive environment with everything they need why wouldn't they get along?

I suppose only time will tell and right now everything is fine. Hopefully it sas that way. Wish me luck hall! Not trying to start an online flame fest here. I'm going to try and will be at osl with the progress weather people disapprove or not lol. Not trying to be ignorant either just the way I see things

Black and White "people" are the same species and genus since apparently you didn't know that ... Nothing like fish ..... thus making your statement very ignorant and offensive and irrelevant because you have no logic/ science behind it ....

best of luck to you will no longer respond to this thread by you do to my love for the website .

Look dude, the times of racism are over, for a long time now. I'm not hurting feelings here it was a simple metaphor. I respect you and all members I didn't think black ad white people would be such a sore subject to you. I apologize if I offended you, or anyone for that matter. In my opinion I did not harm any white, black, or Native American in that post. Sorry you took that the wrong way, or to anyone else I may have offended. I saw nothing wrong, maybe I should have said Canadians and Americans. Hell, Germany and France might be better.

It's all for the fish man, no harm intended.

Really pretty pictures - I hope you saved one for the photo contest :)

The blue and black striped fish - are they cynotilapia sp. hara, or something else?

I'm trying my best to be supportive of your tank choices and so on, which is why I didn't immediately go "it won't work" (Explaining to Eddie, partly). But I did express my reservations, even if mildly so. Stranger tanks have worked out in rare cases.

I wish the times of racism were over, as you confidently state, Josh. But here is not the place for those discussions. I hope that your statement will become true in my lifetime :)

May I ask where you did your research on aggression levels?

Mostly net surfing and a lot of talking to the guys at Nebraska aquatic. Also friends here in Omaha with cichlids experience. I will keep updating and letting you all know how it works so you can enjoy the beautiful mixture too!

I don't want to be a buzzkill here, but that Julii you have is from Lake Tangynika :P and I thought Jewels were from West Africa? None the less, it looks awesome! The fish look very beautiful.

And my girlfriend and I are going to have a baby too!
