Well - all of my Satanoperca species are now rather large /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I think the smallest is about 6" including tail, the largest is probably getting on for 8" TL.

I've got three S. daemon, two S. jurupari and one S. cf. pattaperra in there.. and the tank is only 54" wide.

Considering the aggression problems I had with only three S. daemon, do you think it would be wise to try and remove the other fishes?

If it´s settled down I´d be tempted to leave it as is mate. Ideally sell the tank and get a bigger one as the daemon will top 10" at least eventually... /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Where the fook would I put that in my bedroom, prey? /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Yeah it has settled down, there's little aggression.. but there's not a great deal of anything else either /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> They all seem fairly placid now and not much behaviour other than the S. pattaperra occasionally flaring at the jurus.. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I'm already worried that they're too big for the tank, what are they going to be like in 6 months time? :/

Bigger but I´m sure if you take the rest out the daemon will start scrapping again...imo your only choices are leave them in that small tank or get rid of the lot. Sorry man gotta be honest.

Hmm I'm not so sure. What I might do is, after giving the T. ellioti away, see how the daemon are for a few days while the other fishes are in the ellioti tank. The dominant daemon doesn't touch the next biggest daemon, so I am curious to see if they're possibly m/f.

Aye mate that was the idea. Sell the other fishes.. though I really don't want to lose the third daemon, I think it'd be worth it to have a go at breeding the big guys.

Heh I didn't even mean sell tbh. I would hoy them on Aquarists Classifieds for free. In all honesty only the third daemon and the S. pattaperra are worth anything - the two jurupari are very dull because they're the least dominant fish.

Maybe some of the northeast lads on here know someone who could give them a guaranteed good home?

That'd be good /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> The jurus really need a tank of their own.
