Firehead Tetras in a 20 gallon with Emerald Green Corydoras, a Convict Cichlid and a Spotted Bristlenose Catfish (not shown).

Normally a convict would be to big and aggressive for this situation and I had plans to remove him at the first sign of aggression or when he got to big, however this guy appears to have filed out at a small size and is very timid. He just chills in his cave or roams around looking for food that was missed. Have seen them in community tanks before, even mated pairs, but would not recommend it. Having a single male or female in the tank is your best bet as they can get pretty aggressive at mating time.
