 hi  friends,
                      suggestions  requested  for  an  aggressive  and  a  ferocious  monster  for  my  45  gallon  tanki....
 
   and  now  the  tricky  part....
    i  want  to  keep  a  group  rather  than  a  loner....
    i  want  it  to  be  an  energetic  and  full  of  attitude
    i  want  colors  and  behavior
    ummmmmmm............   Very Happy  
    i`ll  make  it  still  more  complicated  later....   Very Happy
    but  tell  me  if  any  fish  fits  in  ?
   
                                                                                                                                                            regards.
                                                                                                                                                                Saad.

 Dude,
 If  you  want  to  keep  aggressive  fish  as  a  group,  a  45  gallon  tank  is  just  not  enough.  You'll  need  something  like  a  150  G  +  more  likely.  I'm  talking  about  some  of  the  larger  central/south  American  cichlids  here.
 
   I  think  a  group  of  Cryptoheros  sp.  should  suit  your  tank.  You  can  keep  about  5  of  some  Cryptoheros  sp.  but  you'll  have  to  remove  some  once  you  arrive  at  a  pair.  
 
   'Ferocious  monsters'  cannot  be  kept  as  a  group  in  a  45  G  tank,  with  the  exception  of  Convict  cichlids,  and  those  too,  only  an  established  pair.
 
   My  suggestion  :  Keep  a  lone  cichlid  with  an  attitude[one  that  likes  to  abe  alone]  or  an  established  pair  of  some  of  the  smaller  cichlids.
 
 ....Karthick
 (P.S  :  I've  taken  only  american  cichlids  into  consideration)

 I  think  one  fish  fits  all  your  requirement  is  Blue  Jack  Dempsey!   You  can  keep  4-6  of  them,  I  guess.
 
 P.S.  Probably  I  am  suggesting  this,  because  I  got  4  of  them  few  days  ago  Smile
 
 Cheers,
 Jai

 Piranhas  are  skittish  and  truthfully  -  boring  fish  with  no  personality.
 They  only  go  into  the  frenzy  while  feeding  and  while  its  a  great  attraction  to  have  Ps  in  your  house,  it  might  get  boring  for  you  to  keep  them.  Thats  for  RBPs.
 A  single  Rhom  might  do  the  job  for  you  though.
 
 An  oscar  on  the  other  hand  is  like  your  family  dog.  They  are  one  of  the  best  big  fish  you  can  keep.  They  dont  get  too  aggressive  though

 Any  cichlid  that  is  breeding  then  must  be  aggressive!
 
 Dwarf  cichlids  must  do  well  in  your  tank  group  of  6-8  of  one  common  variety  must  be  great!  Thumb Up  
 so  have  a  cozy  tank  with  all  parameters  set  towards  nicer  climate.Hope  fully  they  will  behave.
 
 But  as  Simhan  says  even  I  have  seen  them  with  no  character,  Thumb Down  oscars  need  bigger  tanks  to  be  in  a  little  group  to  attain  any  aggression.But  even  they  are  calm  minded.
 
 BTW  what  about  red  devils?  even  they  are  very  aggressive,and  if  you  would  like,  you  always  have  "Flowerhorn"  Very Happy

 Get  a  single  Chiclasoma  dovii,  or  is  it  now  Parachromis  dovii  -  The  Wolf  Cichlid.
 
 Upgrade  to  a  bigger  tank  as  it  grows.
