"I gambled and put a sub-adult convict cichlid in with a new 4 inch (palm-sized) labiatus I bought locally. It was really stupid of me, and cost the convict its life, though it seemed like it was holding its own. I'll no longer try to keep anything with this one, and wouldn't have attempted it if I'd known better, but it was a juvenile RD. Splendid colors! Highly intelligent cichlid. Not good with plants or unsafe for fish tank decorations. They grow fast on pellets (hikari medium)...I don't plan to live feed, too risky. I'm using sand as a substrate (50 pounds in a 55 gallon tank). LED lighting makes his reds pop. I have some terracotta pots for hiding/territory. Keeping the tank around 80 degrees. Sporadic lighting. For filtration I've got a 500 GPH canister and that's it. Bioballs, sponge, poly-floss, lava rock, puragen...Seems to do fine keeping the levels A-OK. I clean it once a month or two months. I feel bad about that convict. I really liked that fish."
