I have had my male red devil for about 6 months, he is over 20 cms long and he has not killed anything I put in with him, because I take it out before he gets the chance. Everything we have put in the tank with him he attacks and bites. He has successfully lived for a week with another male red devil but them it started to get agressive. Another point to remember is that if you dont have a big enough tank, dont bother trying to put any other fish in the tank.

our tank is 4ftx2ftx2ft

how can you tell if its a female or a male?

mine has a slight hump does this mean it is a girl?

i bought 4 small silver dollars and he is fine with them

i just want a large fish that i can put in there without them fighting

well I think you need roughly a 5 foot or more for two large cichlids especially one's that are agressive in nature like red devils. sexing them is easy if you know how vent, the males usually have a v shaped vent and the females are more of u shape, it is a lot easier to sex red devil females if they have already layed eggs.
