seems to be a too small tank for this sp wich is a great swimmer, like all the "blue sanddwellers".
needs at least a 1.50 m long tank (at least...)

I agree with you..

My original plan was to put them a 90 bow when I got them over a year ago, but ever since they have been breeding like mad and getting along so well I was afraid to move them.

What kind of filtration you have in this tank?

I usually have a sponge filter and an penguin 330 running at the same with weekly water changes. The motor stopped and I have a new HOB filter ordered. That's why I added the second sponge for now.
