I have a 40 gallon tank, home to a fully grown thread finned acara, I was told by my lfs that jewel cichlids would be good tankmates. I have 4 in with the acara and a pair have spawned, I realise that these fish get aggressive at this stage so....will my acara be ok? He is much bigger than them and they don't generally go near them but I am presuming he will see the fry as a light snack, will they harm the other 2 jewels in the tank?
How long before the fry are born, any advice would be greatfully received !!
