He may not kill the GTs considering they are so much smaller than him, and they easily run away. I've seen more cichlid aggression when the cichlids were close to the same size.

he does tend to chase them, but only when they go to his side of the tank. he claimed the entire left side of the tank. luckily this gives my gt's the side which has the biggest hiding spaces and also the best egglaying space :)

he doesn't seem to like his food for now, dunno what they fed him but i want him on hikari cichlid gold and tetra cichlid sticks so we'll be playing the hunger games until he budges.

Beautiful. I love the Texas and GT cichlids, haven't had the opportunity(tank space) over the years to keep either yet. But it's on my list.

I thought I saw him eat a pellet in the vid?!? Is he just being picky?

he spat it back out, but yeah he's being picky, he'll succumb anyway, my gt's are eating the hikari and tetra without hesitating. and their regular spirulina tablet goes down without any issues too :D
