    he’s only got a 8 ft tank for them bud, they don’t grow that big anyway, not like the microlepidota, that grows way beyond most tanks.
    their tank mates are assorted botia, lemon fin barbs and a couple of puntioplites with a great sickle dorsal fin.

    yeah we reckon on around that.
    nice fish but that bloody north and south gets me it’s huge, yet andy said they’re softies.
    i’ll put a pic of his puntioplites not my cup of tea but that dorsal is a cracker.

    Yeah they do look a bit scary , but really are no trouble , strangely when i first put them in the tank there was a little chasing BUT as they settled that dissapeared ! I guess they formed a little hirachy , they share the tank with 2 Labeobarbus Lineatus and three Lemonfin Barbs who rule the roost !
