Cariba Or Natt Tank?

629 Views 10 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  RhomZilla
In the near future I plan to set up a 125 gallon tank, with either 5 cariba, or 6-7 natts/red bellies. I would be feeding a mixture of frozen shrimp, fish, squid, and octopus, and if I can cichlid pellets. I would like to a have a moderately planted tank, with a high current. I also like some activity in the tank. Which group of fish would be most interesting to keep, I know you might say cariba, but what are some positives about natts too. And which would you say are more active, throughout their life. And how active?

But since cariba are meaner, wouldn't there be more torn fins?
Not really, when I had just reds and cariba they lived very peacefully together. I would get the occasional fin nip but not often. Since I added different pygos the aggression has gone up but for now they are playing nicely.
