A dempsey gets more irate (territorial) as it grows, so you could add another 5 or so and opt for a breeding pair, if that sounds interesting (just remove the others and be careful when you clean the...

Crayfish make pretty poor tankmates for most fish. I wouldn't keep them with any fish that are bottom-dwellers, like catfish. Anything that is reasonable fast and not tiny, such as mid-sized tetras...

Could also by a subordinate male. They're really good at disguising themselves. But time will tell. Just give them plenty of room and hiding spots.

This is a little far out but African Malawi mbuna...? Can't get more boisterous than that.

Amanos don't eat other fish. Some other shrimp will, but not amanos (at least, not the ones I had). They will eat dead fish if they find them, though.

Like said above, if they're abnormally this or you're conditioning them for breeding, heavy feeding with large large water changes is great (beef heart). But if not, then fit, lean (not thin or...

Try it. I think it would depend on the individual gourami. Croakers prefer groups unless when in breeding times, when they will pair up and spawn. So 5-7 individuals probably wouldn't be bad (you...

I would go with cardinal tetras instead of neons because they like the same water temp as the rams (80˚F). I'd also use a rubberlip pleco instead of a bristlenose as they are easier on plants and...

Daphnia are much more nutritious than brine shrimp... easy to grow if you have a small tub and a powerful light.

If you choose to include cichlids of any kind, I'd start off with a group of four and let them pick their own mates. they always get along better in the long term that way. If you choose to do GBR,...

I would go for a group (4-6) of the same species of cichlids, either angels or keyholes or cockatoos (rams should be kept in water that's warmer than the others prefer, about 82˚F). You'll get much...

You're able to keep RCS, amanos, and bamboo shrimp with S petricola? Tell us your secrets (unless they're that the cats are still little...)! Sounds like a real nice setup.

Melafix with large frequent water changes and many feedings of good food will boost the angels' metabolisms and they'll be healthy enough to fight off any infection and heal on their own. Be sure to...

These fish are super awesome. I'd definitely suggest a pair of them. They do dig a little, though, so put some big pebbles around any plants in the tank.

It looks a little pale to be a glowlight... I was thinking yellow pristella tetra. But it may be an albino glowlight.
