Saw a beatiful 9 inch moori at the store today. I really wanted to buy him but was worried he would bully my phenos too much. He would be the biggest in my 110. I have 6 5-6 inch phenos that all get along well with each other and I'm guessing if I put a bigger fish in my phenos would all disperse to the edges of the tank. Anyone have experience with large mooris? Gentle giant or big bully?

6 pheno T.
1 sunshine P
4 p msobo juv
4 yellow lab juv
1 bn pleco
1 hybrid pink peacock (not albino)

I have had some guys who were super docile and didn't pic fights at all.

I the lone guy I have now is a little more aggressive. So I think it definitely varies by the fish.

How big are the "juvies?"

Well they were borderline when I bought them. I started with five (msobo). The smallest ended up with his tail sticking out of my biggest pheno's mouth for most of a day. The others were bigger and have grown to about 1.5 inches.

By the way the msobo orange really sets off the blue of the pheno's. I wonder if they will be a problem later since the pheno's in my tank are such weenies.
