I had 6. They were very eventually separated into 6 tanks. The dominant fish was relentless. The group was not big enough.myjohnson said:@ eez, thank you Sir! But they will not stay together for long. I'm moving the petros to my petro thank soon.
@FG, I have 16. I actually don't think these fish are that aggressive compared to other petros I have kept. But they may need to settle in more and breed before true aggression is seen.
@ NS, thank for the compliment. How many did you have in your group?

I got my group from Old World Exotic early last year (5/5)....
I have them in a 125 gallon (6 footer) along with Red Fin Famula Bangwe (3 trios).
They are least aggressive petros that I have .... and believe me I have a lot of petros.
The alpha male is 6.5 inches ... they rest of the group is in the 5 - 6 inch range.
Once again good score ...
breed like rabbits .....
I get anywhere from 20 to 50 babies from the different females.
These are the smaller type petros. It's very doable in a 5' 120g if your numbers are right.Floridagirl said:Guys, thanks for the input. As I've not had any other Petos, I'm just learning their personalities. And, I'm wondering if I bit off more than I can chew for a 5 ft 120 Time will tell. I thought about selling them, but I remember why I wanted them when I see beautiful pics like Thai's! Keep the pics coming, please! :thumb:
yeah, I think having just 6 has a lot to do with it.NorthShore said:I had 6. They were very eventually separated into 6 tanks. The dominant fish was relentless. The group was not big enough.
What size tank did you have them in?areuben said:I'm with northshore - the meanest petros I ever kept along with some red fin ubwari. I had a group of 8 of the ikola , mature WC adults in with 12+ other petros and like northshore, the aggression was relentless. Too bad because the coloring and markings on those ikolas is outstanding.
Can't wait. I'm going to get some updated pictures of my tank...but not all of us can take pics like Razzo....sigh....I need a new camera!myjohnson said:
Shoot, I've been trying to get this guy to post a FTS of that beast since he set it up. Too busy taking pics of his reef tanks these days :lol:myjohnson said:
