    I meant what i said about me putting a single male blackbelt cichlid with a male (largemouth bass) that I've already spawned to keep the male blackbelt cichlid in check. Y'all black my comments on this cause you know its the truth the blackbelt cichlid is a bully and y'all can't except the facked that a male largemouth bass wont tolerate being bullied.

    You know everyone keeps saying blackbelt cichlids are moderately aggressive but on YouTube some people got 1 single male in a tank to make it like they are extremely aggressive. By when I say I'm putting a single male blackbelt cichlid in with a male (LARGEMOUTH BASS) then people want to say blackbelt cichlids are not that aggressive. WHICH IS IT.

As I said and I meant what I said a male blackbelt cichlid should be in the tank with a male (largemouth bass) to keep the male blackbelt cichlid in line

    I have a beautiful female not sure how old. Where do you live I'm living in Canada, Toronto?

I have a Blackbelt that is a good 6 to 7 inches. She I think is rearranging my tank literally. I only have 1 but wondering if she may be trying to lay eggs or what? She has just started this and I have seen her pick up huge pea gravel rocks that I have in my 120 gallon. She next to a rainbow cichlid is the most AWESOME fish and grows at a fast rate.
