I was thinking of putting a Mamfensis Panchax Killifish or Fundulopanchax Gardneri Mamfensis Ossing in with a dwarf cichlid. Possibly a Bolivian Ram or an Appistogramma Cacatuoides.

They have similar conditions however I know certain Killies can be timid while certain dwarfs can at times be bullish. They inhabit different regions of the tank and I don't plan on breeding my dwarfs.

Has anyone heard of this combination before? Would it work or at least be worth a gamble? I know if the killi gets bullied too much it will likely stop eating.. There are also Cardinals in the tank who can at times jump on food.. I think this could offer a very very colorful set of fauna. Any thoughts? (Hopefully something besides: "These are species only") :red_mouth:red_mouth

Come on.. I'm sure someone here has tried this mix.. Anyone with experience with Killifish willing to take a guess at how this might play out?
