Well, the flowerhorn grows pretty big (something like 8") so any of your smaller cichlids may be at risk. As far as personality, I imagine it depends on the fish. They are supposed to be semi-aggressive but I interpret that as, they can go either way. Since you already have him, give it a shot but be prepared to set up another 50g or have an alternate plan should things go awry. They are impressive fish.
