Have you noticed any violent aggression from your Tretocephalus towards the other inhabitants?
I'm currently contemplating getting a pair for my 190 gallon.
It all depends on the individual. My Tretocephalus isn't aggressive at all, I see very little agression towards my two Lamprologus Ocellatus as soon as they get too close but I can't blame my Tretocephalus for that, any fish getting close to one of their shells is send away, or at least being tried to send them away, my Tret however is not so impressed by them and defends himself. I haven't seen any biting at all though. Besides my Altolamprologus Calvus of around the same size as my Tret, scares the guts out of him, haha.
A friend of mine had four young Treto's in a 800 liter and had to remove a couple because of aggression. He has two left in his tank now and it goes fine, there is agression but there is space for the to avoid each other.
Just keep an eye on them
