Hi all, I have five tanks.
Beta tank
Green terror tank (now empty)
40 gallon yellow lab tank, for the time being serving as growout tank for a group of african cichids fry
65 gallon DIY with sump (being cycled)to become malawi tank
20 gallon fry tank with a one inch green terror fry.
I am considering turning the green terror tank onto a growout tank for the yellow lab tankmates (a aschool of one or two of those : rainbowfish, school of red eye/black skirt tetra, pakistani loach, corydoras) after which I move the africans to the 65 gallon tank while keeping some yellow labs then add their definitive tankmates)
Can I put the fry in his parents tank with the loaches/corydoras and tetras ?

You could try but Gts get aggressive pretty quick and im afraid any non-cichlids wouldnt stand much of a chance if he decides to take over the tank

The green terror fry is my most precious fish for the time being, as long as he is safe no problem, besides green terrors seem to grow really slow compared to other fish.
