Thread: Africans and new world cichlids

    Default Africans and new world cichlids

    I have a 6 foot tank with lots of African cichlids in it. Would like to switch it over on day and put in big cichlids like Dempsey, red terror, maybe tiger Oscar or Jaguars. Haven't really decided which ones for sure yet. Question is can I put some store bought ones in with my Africans while I start growing then out. Currently my Africans are between 2 and 4 inch long. Planning on selling off some of the Africans later.

    Some will say yes, others no, I personally don't recommend it as African and New World Cichlids really require different water parameters.
