sure, the Paratilapia's are by no means the only fish
I got a topic on the whole tank here:viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4490
the inhabitants are:
11 Paretroplus maculatus
2 Ptychochromis grandidieri. these are spawning every few weeks now
2 Paratilapia spp "East Coast " (tnx Michael!)
5 Synodontis granulosus
3 Phyllonemus typus.
tank is 315G/1200L
decorations: huge rocks and rootwork, caves and swim-throughs.
both are back in the main tank now.
although the male still doesn't like his female, she finally got the hint that hiding in one of the caves is a LOT better than trying to hide in the upper corner of the tank where she got attacked again and again.
she's feeding again, and getting quite fat. after feeding the male chases her and she hides again.
so there's still agression, but it's not a total demolition derby anymore
the main problem here (but maybe benificial too) is that they're exactly the same size!
so caves where the female can fit in are also accessible for the male.....any PVC tubes for her would be a "chase through" for him.
onb the other hand, his "relative small" size perhaps keeps him from destroying her?
keeping fingers crossed
