I'm changing my stock in my 56G. I've bought 3 johanni to make the male I already have more comfortable. I know they do best in groups. My current stock is as follows: 6 kenyi, 1 yellow tail acei, 1 yellow lab, 1 albino zebra, 1 red zebra, 1 rusty, 1 johanni. I know most will say these fish will grow too large for this aquarium (listed in my profile) but I have a 75 available when the time comes.
I plan on rehoming the zebras and one other to make room for the 3 new johanni. The problem is the new fish are considerably smaller than the kenyi I have. The male kenyi I have are almost a full inch longer than the new johanni.
My question is: would you all reccomend putting the new johanni in my 29 gal
until they grow bigger? They're only 1" and I'm scared they're going to get harassed to death.
* Also, would 3 cichlids be too few to keep their aggression down in the 29"? I'm worried one will get singled out and killed.
