Re: the joys of bigger tanks...
If you raise a bunch in a big tank, the males tend to co exist much better.
I think it is that during maturing, they determine who is the boss and
establish a pecking order before they get strong and agressive enough to do
any real damage. Now I'm not saying you can raise a dozen gularis in a 10
gal, but most of the smaller Fp and Aphys in a 15 or larger will coexist
quite nicely IF RAISED TOGETHER IN THE TANK
Move them around and territory and status must be reestablished and trouble
I'm even on my third generation of a 5 to 10 gal tank with a half dozen pr
of Notho rachovii with no damage. Sparring yes, but killing no.
