I have a 29g that I was thinking of putting some Juli's in. My questions would be:
Can you mix and match Juli species or will you get hybrids?
Is a 29g big enough for more than one pair?
I would probably have a bristlenose Pleco and possible 1 single Neo Brichardi as well.

Thanks!

Another problem is that they will compete and you will likely end up with 1 pair of fish, and depending on your stocking plan, it may be a mixed pair.

Why not do 1 smaller species (regani and marlieri will get too big for the tank) with some shellies instead?

What would 1 Juli, 1 Neo Brichardi, 1 Calvus and a catfish turn out like in a 29g then? It appears that if I go with Juli's I will end up with just a pair.

THanks for all the replies!

Are you meaning that Neolamprologines will breed with Julidochromis spp. ??
It is possible, though not likely, particularly if they have their own species to breed with. Having said that, the original poster asked if you kept multiple Julidochromis species together would they hybridize.

I think that would work out alright. But breeding these fish can be quite rewarding, so consider getting that pair of julies, and perhaps a pair of calvus. Julies tolerate their own fry for quite awhile, and calvus would be good tankmates.

Oops, I misread it. Thanks.
