    I am not sure that I understand your question. Are you asking me about a fish that will not rearrange a tank that is large or are you asking about a fish that will rearrange a tank but that is smaller?

    Could you explain and then I will try to help.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Obviously the smaller the fish the less it is able to "rearrange" the tank as you call it. A smaller fish that does do some moving around of gravel is the Pelvicachromis pulcher or kribs as we call them. I do not know of something like an Oscar in a small version.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    There is a smaller Oscar species, Astronotus crassipinnis, but they're VERY rare. Convicts are much the same as Oscars, but must be very carefully mixed with other fish.

    @ Prof - If one has a 'Blacklisted species' in your tank, may you keep it or should it be "disposed" of?

    Jaguar,

    My advice would be to keep them, as that is not illegal, but I would not multiply them for sale purposes and thereby spread the problem. In my opinion for example convict cichlids could very easily invade rivers in northern KZN and lowveld Mpumalanga and Limpopo.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk
