Is this really true? This was never my impression.
Ideal? No way. OTOH, Rusty, I have kept GAR in community tanks with
mostly larger fish, without any problems. The rest of the description is
utter hogwash. These are Fp. that strongly prefer harder alkaline water
and come from the highland savannah, not the coastal rainforest (soft,
acid). They are considered to be semi-annuals. I always had my best
results when I treated them that way, and let their eggs gestate in
fairly damp peat.
They bred like rabbits in my rather hard Fremont water.
PS. Lissa Derugin had a really nice strain of N'sukka that actually did
pretty well in her soft Palo Alto water. I always considered them to be
an exception that proves the rule (i.e., a bit weird). :-)
