I would wait and see, but keep an eye on them, because when a pair forms you will have to remove the 2 extras or it might start to get violent
4-foot tank - I would add another trio with two more females and one more male. A little bit of competition and a couple more females would do nicely and should improve the situation. I have had as many as six mature calvus & two mature comps in a 4-foot tank and they all did great.bullit said:cheers. They are only around just over an ich at the mo but will see what happens. Russ i have a wild pair of goldheads that im happy with at the mo but my understanding was that i couldnt add anymore? They have recently settled in but i have the female hiding from the male at the mo as i think he wants to mate with her but shes not interested. Any advice here? cheers
4-foot tank: the ideal would be 1 male and three females. I would try to add a second male. 4' might be too small for two males??? The males are fun to watch and aggression between them is usually not life threatening.bullit said:Just been looking at the callchromois. They look pretty cool and a decent price. The cyps, nigripines seem to be expensive but hadnt 100% decided. What sort of number do i want to have with them?
Overall i do want a peacful tank so if the julies are gonna be harrassing the shellies then i can address that. Ill also get a pic of my tank so you can see. cheers
