jewel cich

Who plays nicely with whom? Will these breeds share a tank without eating each other? "Dis is da place"

Ttoday I bought a clown pleco to put in my tank with three jewel cichlidsld. As soon I put it in the two, who are an obvious couple and verry red,began to peck at him, but he just ignored it. shoud I be worried that they will hurt him. they also chase the third jewel like crazy should i use a seperator in the tank and have the couple by them selves and leave the pleco and third jewel alone.

Yes, cichlids that pair off and want to breed will sometimes kill other fish in the tank, in particular catfish that might eat their eggs.

I would seperate them, yes
