I have P. multicolor victoriae in a 6ft tank housed with Pelvicachromis pulcher, Arnoldichthys spilopterus (african red-eyed tetra), and Limbochromis robertsi (only my female remains as I lost my male to a horrible decor incident). They all do quite well together. The pulcher and victoriae both use the groundspace in the tank but I have made sure there are lots of territories by tucking in various caves into the rockwork.

and smaller tanks with livebearers, Bettas, tetras, other
