Hi. Can I keep a group of similis with a group of 17 kitumba cyps, one 5" calvus , four peacocks and 8 petricola cats in a 135 gallon tank? Thanks.

Which peacocks?

The petricolas are likely to raid the similis shells for fry, and a singular calvus may do the same. A paired calvus might not tend to as much.

Thanks for the response ... peacocks are all full grown and colored males and include a lemon jake, jake otter point, reubescen, and bicolor. Tank is peaceful. Would you recommend not having any shell dwellers in this set-up? Are there any other fish I can put in this tank? Thanks again.

I've kept Lepidiolamprologus boulengeri with peacocks successfully in the past... but be warned these shellies are quite aggressive, and get relatively large compared to some of the more popular varieties.
