I've kept exos with african ciclhids.
I don't like this combo for many reasons. First, exo's and Africans don't like the same water chem make-up. Not good or healthy for the long haul.

Exodon, especially in big groups like 25 are ruthless. I wouldn't keep them with anything other than maybe pygocentrus or metyness (pacus).

A group that size, I would just enjoy as they are on their own.

Try tossing in a bunch of zebra, or giant danios with them and sit back and watch the speed!!

right now my exos (14) are in the same tank with One Khuli Loach and one Blue shrimp (female with eggs, hopefully i get more shrimp from her...cost me 8 bux for it!)

so yea, mostly low level swimmers because exos tend to stay mid to high range in the tank, when the lights turn off, they sit near the bottom to sleep(hover in place)

so anything that chills on the bottom like a small eel or watever will do (dont get a tire track eel, itll grow and eat ur exodons.......
