Hi, a buddy of mine wants a pair of cichlids for a 30 gallon tank, he originally wanted Texas blue but I've convinced him its not a good idea. He was then thinking convicts and I warned him about stupid amounts of fry that would be hard to pass on. I think he wants 2 nice show fish that reach maybe 5 to 6 inches. Has anyone any suggestions or is the tank just to small for two 5-6" fish?

Thanks

Paul

Hi Paul he may get away with 2 Geophagus sp. Tapajos 'Red head' they are what you call a show fish, other than that i would stay with the medium size like Rams (electric blue) or a choice of the Apistogramma family
