Default Geophagus altifrons

Here is my 220 wide 72x30 wide x 24 with 15 altifrons. I grew out this batch from the previous parents that I sold a few years ago.

Beautiful tank.....love the bare bottom.

How aggressive are these fish?
Could they coexist with Discus??

I really like the pleco in there as well. They look huge and happy.

Thanks alot.

These guys are gently giants. I know some people have kept them with discus but you kind of run the risk of the discus not eating enough food. That's typically the problem, they aren't aggressive but they eat faster. Haven't tried myself though.

I'm interested in the adult altifrons just not sure where I would keep them.
What size tank would you recommend for 6 adults?

Bigger the better. But around 125 and up. Some of the largest males are 12"
