There's 3 black skirt tetras in my mbuna cichlid tank. They were my cycle fish. And they were left in there when I started adding the cichlids. They still get along great the cichlids leave them alone.

I think it has allot to do with what fish you pit in there first and how much attention you actually pay to your fish. I actually pet my fish. And hand feed them sometimes. I got my hands in the tank every day. They kind of like puppies. Lol

You can see the size difference with the tetras and the cichlids and of course I forgot to mention that there is a rainbow shark in there too he gets along just fine too.

I had just introduced a new platty to my tank. The beta kept flaring up and chasing him around. He went to the bottom and set next to my cichlid. The beta followed him and flared up at him and got poked in the side by the cichlid he was sitting beside. Lol already friends.
