Thanks for the response Hydro'!Hey Jake this is a quick response.
So long as you have several of the I. furcidens to disperse aggression the Honduran red point will be fine with them. They are mainly only feity with fish that look real similar. And they do not eat fry much in my experience.
It is generally best not to combine two or more goodeids int eh same setup because there is a chance of hybridization. If you want to add another livebearer I think that a wild-type molly would be a good choice. I can hook you up with some Poecilia chica. That is a cool fish.
Remember that theose livebearers are more demanding than you might think. If you want big, colorful fish you have to feed them a lot. And that means lots of water changes to maintain favorable conditions. They also benefit from having the live plants in there.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with them. It is much appreciated!i agree. your HRP's will mostly ignore the goodeids. I used to keep the smaller central american cichlids with swordtails and platy's as dithers and had zero problems. given that the goodeids are a little more rough and tumble than your typical livebearers, you'll be fine.
i do want to suggest trying out the other cryptoheros like cutteri, spirilum, nanoluteus, or sajica.
