Are carpinte cichlids known for being very agressive? I just got a baby to put in my baby cichlid tank and it's punking my baby jack dempsey who's bigger than it. I didn't expect this to happen, is it because carpintes are nasty?
Depends on the book you read! But that's not too bad a guess! Problem is there are different 'wild' populations of carpintis and there are hybrids in the hobby (and maybe in the wild) of carpintis and cyanoguattatum.
