My Columbians are as peaceful as can be - I have 18 in a 125, but they are housed with Buenos Aries tetras (10) and they all school together. Maybe the quantity makes the difference. my Columbians spawned last summer - I originally had 12 - and the few I couldn't catch stayed in the tank. The survivors are what brought the number in the tank up to 18. However the 45 or so fry that I caught are now an inch long in their own tank. Soon I hope to be moving them to both a 55 and a 90.

There are also a few Black Neons, Harlequin Rasboras, and two pita Blue tetras in the 125 - the Columbians have never approached or harassed any fish.
