Should work fine. Remember, the less they're disturbed, the better the chance of them not dying or being eaten by the parents. If they've raised them this far, there's a good chance they'll go all...

I wouldn't worry too much about taking out one for the swords. I've got 14 of them in a 55 gallon, and they're doing pretty good. Granted, the growth is a little slower than if I had, say, 5, but...

It sounds like he may have simply died. Some individual fish just do that. And yes, the syno is probably the one who ate him, but it wouldn't have been able to kill him. I'd definitely try another...

What sort of place tetras? Black neons? Heck no. Black skirts? well, if the skirts are freaking hug and the cardinals are tiny, MAYBE. But probably not.

I've actually had smallmouth bass before. They were really cool, but they just get too big.

Predators (must meet several criteria)

SO I have a very heavily-planted 55 gallon that has a discus, two angels, a rubberlip pleco, and a flying fox in it. I want to get some predators, as I've never had any real predatory fish before...

Yeah, they'll not fight unless there are females present. They will be territorial (it's a male cichlid thing), but they won't be as high-octanely aggressive as if there were females around. That...

Probably not, as they're completely unrelated fish, but it so does look like a cross.

I think it's just a wild-type M. ramirezi. Probably a female.
