I decided to try something out today, I needed some tank space so I evicted a little female a. Agassizii from her tank. I first tried to move her to a community type tank where the only fish she'd worry about were some guianacara and some heros but that tank had too much current and she was flailing about which brought a lot of hungry mouths toward her and I could see that wasn't going to work out even though I though that would have worked. Not being able to do that I said whatever, come what may and placed her into my tapajos Biotope. I honestly wasn't so worried about the female regani but I was sure the male's would take a run at her. Happy to report so far at least I was totally wrong. The male's barely seem to care. The females have been more interested. How crazy. I'm sure it won't work in every situation but I'm very pleased with how it has in this case. Of course I have video proof, the video is short and bad but it's this little female Agassizii hanging out mere inches from one of my male regani. And they are what I assume is fully grown too. Fantastic.

In case anyone is wondering the a. Agassizii did not make it, not eaten, but did die I think from an injury caused by a bite. There is an l333 that I have in this tank now too. Not tapajos, but close ish to some species that do live in this river.

thanks man, i'm impressed they decided to spawn myself. i have been experimenting with different temp water changes because i am trying to get 2 of my c. regani to spawn in a different tank so it seems to have worked here at least. still no luck with the pikes though.

Looks like I might get lucky with mm y Pike's after all. I wasn't planning on this pair to breed, but I'll take it. https://youtu.be/WSatouGuW1I
