I never really thought of plant spawning killies as dithers, I considered them more centerpieces themselves. I also thought they'd end up either being too fragile to handle the cichlids or aggressors themselves. Then again I also haven't kept a pelvicachromis species in around a decade.

Kribs def aren’t peaceful. Not as bad as a large cichlid, but mine claimed half of a 60 and let nothing past. They killed a rainbow shark to defend fry, my convict hasn’t even gone psycho yet.

Killies are good, clown killies especially, as they are active swimmers and come from roughly the same area. Smaller tetras to consider are Adonis and jelly bean tetras. These are found more northwestern of the congo regions. Most pelvicachromis originate from these areas as well. Other larger tetras such as alestes come from this area as well.
