Kyoga flamebakcs & ruby green

Postby jcolella1 » Sat Jan 26, 2013 10:42 am

I have a group of 7 flamebacks in a 90 gallon. They are about 2-2.5 inches.
Would I be able to put a group of Kyoga Ruby Greens in the same tank? They are around 2 inches themselves.
Also, would they crossbreed since they are similar?

If it would not be a good idea, I was also thinking about getting a group of 3-4 red empress. They are 3-4 inches.

The tank has lots of rocks & fake plants for them to hide and get away from each other.

Ruby Greens have a rep for being on the timid side and are often kept in a species tank so they will color up to their fullest potential.

That's too bad. Saw some nice ones and can't set up another tank, as I just did the 90 gal.
I guess ill go with the red empress.

My flameback has not colored up to his full potential with haps, but it's an all-male tank. Maybe you will have better luck with mixed genders.
