Which species do you like better. I have a 40 gallon tank that I want to put them in, but I think I can only have one of these two species. So please share some experiences, which is easier to keep, more interesting, etc. I do not want a fish that comes to the front of the tank when I am there, that gets annoying. I want fish that just do there own thing. They will be in a tank with cory cats, glass cats, a bristlenose, and rubberlip pleco, and kuhlis. Thanks!

The ones I've seen seemed to just go along with their business.

Once they settle they follow you around. My Geos will play fetch with a ping pong ball.

Thats really neat! Have you ever kept bolivian rams? I like them because they look like geophagus.

I have kept them and lots of other SA cichlids but you don't have an appropriate tank for any.

I liked them but they are not my favourite SA cichlids.

I have bolivian rams and they are intelligent and entertaining fish, and I personally love the more subtle colors.
