*Snorts*

I'm laughing because I've seen our female goldies do this

I keep guppies, platys, otos and neon tetras with 6 pairs of GBRs, going on 7 months now. I've also kept rosey reds with GBRs in another tank, for about a year.

Look, you're new to this forum and while voicing opinions and experience is encouraged, being snippy and condescending towards well-respected and knowledgeable forum members is not good practice. They very well may help you save a fish one day.

That's a BEAUTIFUL example you're setting on how not to be snippy and condescending.

Not being snippy or condescending at all. I didn't use any sarcasm and had no ill intent. I even stated that your advice and experience is very much encouraged and welcome.

Cichids and goldfish are NOT compatible in any way, shape, or form. One will die.

Goldfish are cold water fish - heaters will kill them.

Cichlids are warmer water fish - no heat will kill them.

What else do you have in that tank?
Ah no i removed the goldfish cz it wont make it with all those agressive fishes.

So you just naturally sound that way?

(Sorry.. Don't expect me to back down and be submissive just because I'm new to *this* forum, and your post count happens to be higher than mine.)

Now, back to the topic at hand. No matter how you want to slice it, putting goldfish with cichlids is *not* common practice, generally doesn't work, and by no means should be encouraged. Just because it may have worked for one person, that doesn't mean the next person should jump right out and try it. The fact remains that the mix he had in that tank was a prime recipe for disaster, and somebody else came alone and suggested it was fine because it worked "for them".

*face palm* cue "why can't we be friends" theme song. We all have voiced our opinions now, let's just settle down before "big brother" closes this thread.
