The Electric Blue Acara Cichlid is generally peaceful even with its own kind. If more than one is kept, they will form pairs. They will also usually not bother any fish that stays away from its territory, except when it is breeding it may tend to become more aggressive. They will breed every two weeks on a regular basis if the fry are removed shortly after hatching. However they are excellent parents and will not harm the fry even if left in the aquarium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fish! I had a pair in a 30 gal breeding and had eggs twice but then the male got very aggressive and the female jumped out of the tank one night. We both miss her very much and want to find another but when I found these two I didn't even know what a rare find I had found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! Love my Blue Acara. His demeanor is very docile and slow moving like he where a giant fish 3". Although, he is no push over and will stand his ground. Gets along with my peacocks and Jack. d which are bit more aggressive.

I have a 20 gallon tank what cichlids fish do you recommend for me? There is no fish in it now and it is a hexagonal tank.

Asked by: Carsona14
i would recommend some Ram Cichlids or some apistogrammas both are relatively small cichlids and will do great in a 20 gallon.
