Jay, can you keep a curviceps and a dorsigera in the same 50 gal. tank?
I wouldn't. Just like and other cichlid, they will become aggressive while spawning and will try to eliminate others.

What if they are both males and there are no females in the tank?
You can try I guess. But at the same time they are not going to show their best colors without females in the tanks. Both species have spectacular coloration during breeding. In "off-season" they are just another normal looking dwarf cichlid.

Jay,

Do these fish scare, eat, or bother in any way Amano shrimps or Otos?

I ask becasue I have some Apistos that I wish I didn't have because they don't let shrimp or otos do anything else but hide without even moving.

Niko,

I had them with amano shrimp without any adverse effects. Good luck :wink:
