Alto's ?

Recommended Posts

hi just wandering if anyone has kept several variants of alto males together as display ????

eg; 1m fire fin , 1m gold comp , 1m black & white calvus etc etc ...

will they fight for territory or would the absence of females keep the calm ??

any experience or opions appreciated ..

cheers in advance .

Peter

no its not a stupid question,

i keep all three, but mine are breeding so i keep them in seperate tanks,

i have seen comps and calvus together in a large display tank in an aquarium shop and he has had them in there together for quite a few years.

Hey,

I have just moved and had to put all my alto's about 40-50 in a 6*2 while I sort out their tanks.

It looks fanastic and they are all doing very well, I'd like to leave them as I like to sit there and watch them... so it's no issue keeping all together.

Cheers

Grant
