here's where I'm at. I've been rethinking the green terrors, they will eventually get too big anyway, so my lfs
is going to trade me for 3 firemouths, or I suppose I could even get something else. so they're out of the picture. that leaces some convicts, the firemouths, and a couple Salvini. the Salvini may pose the next problem.
what I had been looking at were ELectric yellows, and Acei. peacocks would be nice, but I'm not sure, I've never had Africans.
so, now that no one has said no way, it can't be done, I'm looking for suggestions.
here's what I really want to have, as far as New World goes. I want the Firemouths, and I eventually want some severum. I'd like to keep a few of the convicts, but probably not all seven I have presently.
as for the Africans, I need something that can handle that aggression level, but won't exceed it. if the Salvini are a real problem, then I can do something with them. I really like them, but realize they can be bed tempered. it's the concession to go with a few colorful Africans that is making me willing to let go of some of my other likes.
so, 100 gallons, 60x18x24. convicts, firemouths, salvini, (and a pair of Mollies
adding a pair maybe or red shouldered Severum in the future. what can I go with?
also important, nothing on my list except the severums will exceed 6 or so inches, so no giants. I thought about frontosa, but they get too big.
