Jack Dempsey... although midas and RD's are reportedly great, too, but they dont look near as good as a Dempsey or Jag or GT.

Dempseys also grow a bit smaller than the others, if your concerned of tank space

Your girlfriend will love the Oscar as mine do, very very smart cichlid and not too difficult to care!

Best i can recommend!

I would say an oscar, but due to their size you may want another cichlid - other than that I would suggest a severum (not 2) or parrot cichlids or both of these options.

I know parrot fish are hybrids but the ones I have owned have been full of personality and some of my fave fish that I have ever owned!!!

also with them and the severum you can have other fish

You could find her a cheaper flowerhorn... they are extremely interactive with their owner, and she will be crazy for a girly colored one. She will think it is a darling... but you will secretly know its a hellraiser in a glass cage

What size tank does she have? Get her a pair of convicts. Really easy to take care of. And she'll probably like it when the convicts have babies.

I can use the babies as feeders!


I was thinking a red devil or midas, they look awesome! What are the ones that require the smallest tank size?

devil or midas will require at least a 75g tank. if you have any questions you can always ask me over IM as well if need be mike. I'll try to snag some pics of my baby devil/midas for you to check out.

I would go for a Flowerhorn also.. She would love it for the color and think that you'd put so much efforts in looking for a perfect one she'd like. (Remember.. girls like colorful and shiny things
)

Keep us posted on what you decide on, and what her reactions would be!! Good Luck Romantic Mike!!!!
