Things arent going so good lol... dusty (hrp) did what I was worried about and immediately checked capone out and is flaring and almost looks like he was gonna nip at him. Capone so far isnt paying him any attention but him and dory are already having a stand off capone charged a couple of times but dory hasn't backed down yet...looks like they are competing for the right side of the tank near the mopani dw...oh boy


What?! That sounds like that went more peacefully than my adding Adie to Henry's tank :huh:

Now I'm betting you're going to have this amazing peaceful tank even though Capone is the devil incarnate and Henry doesn't know how to do anything in a fight except flail like an idiot and drift away :pinch:

(I might be jealous).

They will figure it out, it takes a little time. In my 210g I get a few flare ups with the pearsei at the regani but nothing that is dangerous. Just make sure no one is bullied to the point where they cant feed.

All should be OK. This is nothing more than establishing a pecking order. These are SA cichlids, & these guys are nowhere near as agro as my CA's. NO WAY IN HELL I would even think about introducing a new cichlid into my Jag's tank.

Good video, Frank.

My prediction is Capone is going to rule that tank. Look at the fin growth on him. He is going to put on weight like a Sumo. Gratz to Dory for standing her ground, but in the end, mass wins. The HRP is going to be a non factor soon, and will travel the same road that my Convict did. "Spunky" only goes so far.

Great tank! Welcome to the big boy club. :)

Dory's stand was very short lived.... capone is already attacking the glass when anyone walks by dory has beem hiding and dusty avoids him at all costs

Guys you think adding a bunch of Denisen barbs to the tank would be over stocking ?
