30" is too small for a pair to go through the mating process, or maybe even live once a pair forms. 36" maybe...30" no.


Also the fish will not necessarily pair with one of each. If you want a pair you stock six individuals and let them choose their own mate, then rehome the rest.



So since I do not have enough tanks....then I should put the Red Fin Compressiceps back in the community tank when I get the larger tank (tomorrow)...OR find a home for him which does not guarantee he will be taken care of.

I thought you liked the idea of him alone with shellies in your 30" tank?

I would do that or rehome.
