I've got a number of comps and calvus growing out in a 40 breeder with a group of breeding lwanda peacocks and they dont fight either but they arent at that size yet where they really start murdering each other and i have alot of shells in there for them to hide in
Kind of reasuring its kind of like my six foot, a very mixed bag of fish. So far so good and hoping it will stay that way but on the look out for problems and guys that need separating.
I guess you are talking about the Altolamps using shells not the lwanda peacocks. Funny I found males to be totaly intollerant of each other but you may have more and have a stable balance.
