That would be SO cool if you could get a video! :bounce: I've been wondering the same thing that was asked above. A video would probably capture a lot of the personality that is hard to put into words.I have 300 habrosus coming in this weekend, THAT is a sight to see! I will have to see if I can get a video for you guys.
Except with female apistos!!To really see them exhibiting good behaviors, you need a decent sized group. I prefer them in groups of ten or more at which time both species will use all levels of teh tank. Insmaller groups, they tend to be much more shy. Gotta remember, they are small, so low man on the totem pole. The more the merrier with little fish.
I had all 3 together for a while (now in diff tanks). Hastatus and pigmeus school together, never saw habrosus 'school' with others but they do co-exist just fine.Everyone says that pygmaesus is really shy even with large numbers. I did get 3 hasbrosus to start and they are very outgoing so far. I really enjoy them and hope to get more.
Does anyone keep all 3 species together? I wonder if hasbrosus would make pygmaesus more outgoing or do they school separately?
