I currently have 4 of them. I absolutely love them, but they are EXTREMELY aggressive toward each other. Although I ordered 2 pairs, it seems that they are actually 3 males and 1 female. :cry: I have one pair in a 75 with lots of wood and rocks so that they can get away from each other when they need to. They are housed with a school of Hemigrammopetersius caudalis (Yellow Congo Tetras) which they completely ignore. They have acted as if they would spawn before, but nothing has ever come of it.

I have some fry that I got from Bill Sensor in Pittsburg who spawned the pair he got about six months ago. The fry are very slow growing, even though at only 1/3" they are very aggressive feeders.
