Giant danios or buenos aires are some of my favorites personally. Some sailfin Molly males may be robust and aggressive enough to handle that beast, but aren't gonna be fast enough to put swim him

Hey Freakgecko. Funny thing is for the last 3 weeks when I would lift the top to feed he would hide but watch me until I closed the lid then come out and eat. So today I post this and go to feed an hour later and sure enough he's just about jumping out at me to get the food before it hits the water. These centrals amaze me some times.

True in the wild but I wonder if that could be it.

I have two Australian rainbows (plan on getting more) with my cichlids and they are doing great. Even setting up territories and won't let the other rainbow in.

I don't use anything but Buenes Aires and always buy Petsmart out during the $1 sale, I don't mind spending a buck for a snack but refuse to spend anymore for something that more often then not is dinner.
