Get 10 exodons. I tost in a pinky the other day which the jack dempsey ripped open and swallowed whole..sure enough he was choking on it as the exos swarmed underneath him. I spit it out and they went crazy over the torn up pinky.. dragging it all over the tank.

Hey Innes, dont those parrot cichlids get pretty large...like 10"? My gf got 3 for a 10 gallon because the dude at the lfs told her they would be fine...the next week we are at a different lfs and there is a massive one. I had her trade them in the next week.

they should grow at least 7-8 inches. You should have seen the jumbo ones in chinatown in philly. Not a good choice for a 20 gallon.

I know how big they can get - and not from China town in Philly - but in a 20 gallon they will not get that big and in my opinion are suitable


I also like thePACKs idea

Good choice BDK, but his tank is high, not long. Exo need a fairly large tank to swim in.

I would say puffers!!! They're chick magnets!!
