I have had two experiences with community tanks with respect to GAR N'sukka.
I had a tank of about a dozen pair of nsukka, some, rivulus, some apyo's,
and a few other odds and ends. I stuck a male N. rachovii in and WHAMO!!!!
He was finless. I rescued him 20 min after being introduced to the tank.
He survived to a ripe old age. Then I put a pair of Apistogramma
caucatuoides 'Double Red' into the 55 with them. Again WHAMO!! The fins of
the female where bleeding stubs and the large male looked a bit tattered. I
removed all of the killifish except an odd Epiplaty or something and now
have many little fry from the pair of Apisto's.
Just my 2 cents worth!!!
