Just got a 125 gal tank and i would like to stock it with some cichlids. I want to put a bunch of different fish in the tank.. varying sizes would be nice.. which cichlids would suit well for a community tank, and if you have any other fish other than cichlids that are good tankmates let me know..

are green terrors able to be kept with other fish?

African cichlids are about the easiest to keep together. I've a tank full of them.

green terrors are, by SA/CA cichlid standards, unexceptional. Their name exaggerates them, though that doesnt mean they are pansies either.

A green terror and 10-12 african mbuna would be an awesome tank to watch. Or a GT and a convict and 8-10 mbuna. A GT and the smaller Tanganyikan cichlids might even work.

no, exos are just another overrated fish. If they dare took scales off the africans the africans would probably beat them silly

Africans would be nice, or you could go with medium to large new world cichlids.

yep I have exos too they just chase each other but they do chase fish that are smaller than them. I have some blue danios and the exos chases them.

btw do you guys have pics of you african cichlid tanks?
