Not many unless you have a monster tank. It is unlikely that the flowerhorn & red terror will live together as adults.

What size tank do you have?

That will do until the fish are about 3" long and then they need at least 90 gallons each.

There are species that will live in a 55 gallon but neither of these fish can.

Lots of questions I know but the more you tell us the easier it is to suggest suitable fish.

If your red terror is female it may be able to stay in the 55g on it's own but that is all.

What decor do you like? rocks, wood or plants?

How far away will you be viewing the tank from?

Do you want fish that react to you or just look pretty?

How much time each week do you want to spend on maintaining the tank?
