Hi, I bought a pair of pims at the weekend, and am now looking to move them into a 48" tank once it has been set up (which will be in a couple of months). Does anyone have any ideas on what I could put in with them in the new tank? I don't really want anything too big or agressive, and I might get some more pims, so any suggestions?

I'd definitely add more pims. You could also keep an L number plec or two (choose the more active species). Other stuff that could work would be medium-sized characins, cyprinids and rainbowfish. P. pictus like a fair bit of water flow and are voracious feeders so slower-moving stuff like most cichlids and anabantoids are out in my opinion.

i agree with Matt. pims will usually have a go at eating anything that will go in their mouths.

The only Pims I've kept were in a 180g along with Texas, Redheads and Gold Saums, they were left alone /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" />

I still can't believe those "glo-fish" are legal in the states. It makes me sad /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />

They look pretty, but I think that that's not the way nature intended fish to be /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />
