Few quick questions for you hap/peacock all male tank owners.....

First, I currently have a yellow fin borleyi hes about 6inches or bigger. Tank boss but not overly aggressive. Question is, could I add a red fin borleyi? They look different enough but wanted to see if anyone had had experience with keeping both red and yellow fin borleyi in the same tank.

Second, I have a VC 10 who's huge but a gentle giant. Very mild temperament despite being 6-7+inches. Thinking about adding a fusco to the mix but he's gonna be another huge fella. I don't wanna risk too many big guys in the tank (6ft/125g) and I've heard mix reviews of having fusco.

So basically what have you all heard about multiple borleyi (albeit different) in the tank and fuscos?

Thanks in advance!

In addition to avoiding look-alikes, you also want to avoid closely related fish...I would avoid 2 types of borleyi.
