Hi timberland and Tam,

They grow to 30+ inches. Native to the Congo - also found in Lake Tanganyika. Common names are Six-barred Distichodus, Short-nosed Clown Tetra and Tanganyikan Distichodus (Distichodus tanganicae = Distichodus sexfasciatus).

ya mine kinda eat anything as well. I do give em lettice a lot and some pallets etc. No mine don't swim together. the big one chases the lil two around the place and seems to be annoyed by the other 2. must be a big bully syndrome or something. Most of the time they just hide and eat and craP.

They are fairly peacefull fish i was told and they apparently grow up to 3 feet long. They seem to be growing fairly slow at this point in time...
