One of he only fish ive been able to add to my tank with my red devil or midas cichlid. This fish is tough, its half the size of the red devil and holds it own. Also it can tolerate higher temps and ph than listed, i keep mine in a tank with two mbuna and the midas and they all do fine together.

I bought my midas about 2 months ago one thing to note, these fish grow fast! Twice as fast as other species of cichlid. Very interesting coloration, white with red spots just like a koi. The midas killed every other fish except two african mbuna and a texas cichlid, it also killed another midas i had purchased at the same time about a month after being in the tank together. Can live with other fish as long as they are just as agressive, id suggest an aurotus or one of the varieties of texas cichlids as a tank mate, no convicts they didnt have a chance against this midas.

i have 4 oscars; a red, an albino, and 2 common oscars. they can be quite the handful sometimes. i started them out in a community tank because when i got them they were only about 3 inches. but soon enough they killed every fish i had in that tank. my mom was pretty mad. they ate about $50 worth of fish, but i dont regret it at all. they are more fun than a dog

i bought my red devil about a month ago and put him in with 4 oscars ranging from 4 inches to about 7 inches. i have read a lot about them and every source says that they are very aggresive. but my red devil, who is aobut 4 inches long, is very peaceful. he doesnt bother anyone nor is he ever bothered with. there's a kind of tank peace agreement i guess. he a is very colorful fish with lots of personality, but i think he lacks the aggresive gene.

I am a police officer in my hometown and i am assigned to the detective bureau. I own a 35 gallon fish aquarium that is positioned next to my desk at work. In my aquarium i have five beautiful jellybean parrot fish. These fish have more personality than some of the other police detectives i work with. All the guys gather around my desk to witness the feeding when i feed my parrots feeder goldfish.

I have two parrot fish named Tater Chase and Totsy-Tot. They are very hungry most of the time and do the "I want food dance" when we stick our fingertips in the tank. They nibble and make the sweetest kissing smoochy sounds!!! We also have six tiger barbs and a pleco in our 10 gallon tank. Everyone is happy with them!

I have a 48 gallon tank with two 4 inch yellow cichlids and two blue dolphins about the same size. I have hiding places for all of them and they all get along great. They get a little excited around feeding time but that's about it. They are best in larger tanks with plenty of hiding places. They don't eat anything off the bottom of the tank so i'm going to add a bottom feeder that will mix well with them. These fish can be highly aggressive but in the right surroundings they do fine.

I bought a 3 inch red devil and put it in with a 6 inch oscar, a 12 inch algae eater that was about 7 years old , a 6 inch soap dish crab all in a 50 gal tank. after about six months red has killed them all. A large bump came up on his head for about three weeks then one nite it went away. the next morning there was eggs all over. now we have fry everywhere, immaculate conception i guess. Jim
