I have kept duboisi in the past and am aware of the color changes and their difficulties, although can not remember how old they were and the details.
I have cycled the tank and my ammonia levels are zero, as are my nitrate. And I am familiar with normal fish care and setup!
My tank is small due to various reasons at the moment, but it is well filtered with 2 Fluval 305 filters and a biowheel. As you will notice above, I stated that in spite of really wanting them, I have chosen not to get frontosa or dolphins due to the size.
As far as your comments about the bow front, it does nto add a thing for the fish, but does add something for us humans, and that is why we chose it!
As for your suggestion to mix small shell dwellers with calvus, I recommend against it as there is a chance they will get munched on in the middle of the night.
Don't worry about me being disheartened. I simply think you missed my question and spoke about what you thought you knew about instead of what I was interested in learning.
Thanks for you time,
