The Africans can be very aggressive and try to destroy your fish like you wouldn't believe. What kind are they and what kind do you have? Sizes?

They also generally have different water and dietary requirements.

The African's that i got from my friend are about 4" long I will post pics later on today,
I believe one is a Blue Cobalt Cichlid

Great big African cichlids vs. small SA, sounds bad to me. Plus, they do have really different water requirements.

Can you get your friend to move his tank to your house instead of just moving the fish?

A hassle, yes. But who knows, friend might not want to move again after that, and you'll have an African tank.

What size tank are they in? That arrowana in the back looks fairly big.
