Hi
Just a question on these Five Stars.
I saw these for th 1st time tday at my LFS and thought they were absolutely stunning and was dying to get them but decided to research before buying.
My Question is can I house these with CA/SA Cichlids???
Any info would be great!!!!
Thanks Chris

They probably have the same temperament as Petenia or any of the Parachromis, so aggression wise would be better with centrals. If they breed, the gloves will come off!

I think you would see them at their best in their own setup :)
