I've read that they're very hard on each other... have you found that to be true?

The big male on the photo is around 12 cm. And he is the boss. To start with, I got 6 Etia nguti in March 2006. I think I have 4 left. I keep them in a 530 liter tank together with 6 Krobia and 10 Guianacara. The Etia has been trying to spawn, but I need to move some of the others. But then I think it could happen, that he would be more aggressive towards the other Etia's. I think they can be quite aggressive at times.

I don't have them anymore. I gave the entire group to Anton lamboj and he has them now. I can get more and they were very difficult for him to get so I gave him my group. I miss them though because they were very cool and getting some nice size on them
