Hi folks ... quick question ... currently have a 150 gallon housing 17 kitumba cyps (ranging in size from 2"-3.5") a 5" calvus and four male peacocks. All getting along well. Have a chance of picking up 5 unsexed 1.25-1.5" paracyp nigripinnis Neon blues. Will it be okay to add the paracyps to this tank ... or are they too small. Let me know what you think. Also, can you recommend anything else I might add. Thanks.

Paracyps are likely to be bullied, and not show their best with those tankmates. I would recommend more calvus, and other bottom dwellers. Is the tank 6ft long?

Hi ... I was afraid of that ... yes, it is a 6ft tank. Thanks for the suggestions ... how many more calvus could I add ... I've always been afraid to add more calvus because I thought they were tough on one another and wouldn't tolerate one another.
