Those rams are too comfortable now. I wouldn't want to move them.

Well since you're in the UK and usually have a better selection, what dwarves do you have available that we might be able to recommend?

They'd be with fire mouths? Or just a mix of dwarf cichlids in a 47? If they have the whole tank? Pick one and do an lfs tank. . 10 males and 22 females!

Are you saying you have an empty tank that you want to add a bunch of SA dwarves to?

What are the dimensions of the tank?

I probably would not mix Apistos unless the tank is fairly large. If you did mix Apistos make sure you select Apistos from different groups so you can tell them apart.

What I would recommend if you want to put a bunch together and have the room is to get a species of apistos and maybe a laetacara species and some M. altispinosus. But the dimensions of the tank will drive that to a degree.

I'm not sure to be honest gillie. I would just like to know what dwarf cichlids can coexist together with little trouble then I will look at what is available. I'd have to go to a maidenhead aquatics which is quite a drive to see what they have.

No brookster, I wouldn't put them in with the firemouths. I was just thinking if replacing the firemouths. They don't really do anything but hide under the rocks.

It would be empty if I got some dwarfs yes. Dimensions are 3 foot by 1 foot. 47 U.S gallon.

Thanks Dalto I'll have a look at what you have recommended.
