400l stocking


The Netherlands
I'm thinking of adding a group of Dicrossus filamentosus to the tank. It will probably be something like 3 males and 7 females or 3 males and 5 females. Other fish would be:
16 Nannostomus beckfordi
8 - 10 Copella arnoldi
8 Moenkhausia pittieri
3 Sturisoma sp. Aff. Festivum
2 Cleithracara maronii

Will the Dicrossus and Cleithracara combine? The Cleithracara are, together with A. iniridae, the most friendly fish I have ever kept.

Also, I would like to add an Apistogramma specie. I'm currently thinking of A. macmasteri, or maybe A. iniridae again. Any suggestions?

The tank's dimensions are 150x50x60 (60 height), also it's current setup:

The angelfish will be removed.

I'm clueless. If I say something you can safely ignore it.

I see that The Wet Spot Tropical Fish currently has the fire red A. agassizi you are looking for. Here is the link:
I've always had good experiences buying from them on line.
I am Hanzle from Holland and keep apistoos for 40 years. Had my own aquarium shop from 1984 till 1988. Always s great fan from apistoos and hyphessobrycon which is s great combination in a Community Aquarium. Perhaps.....in the near future I start breeding apistoos again. Have a 400 liters Community aquarium for hyphessobrycon wadai and apistogramma biteaniata.
I want to get a 55 gallon slightly planted tank with many caves and I am thinking of getting 2 electric blue acaras, 3 blue rams, a apistogramma, 3 angelfish, and some corrydoras. Will that work if I keep the temperature at about and 80 or less?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
