    I’m lucky enough to have a very good local fish store that carries the Honey Sunset variety of T. chuna – the females of this color form are a bright yellow – they rival my Cardinal Tetras in color once they’ve settled in.  So I’m not worried about having dully colored females, like the wild forms are.

    I think I’m leaning toward the Honeys, then.  I’m a bit hesitant about keeping a male, as I don’t want these to breed and have the male being aggressive guarding the bubble nest.  But it sounds like getting multiple females would be good for them.

    What interactions and aggression have you seen between your females?  Do they pick out territories through the tank and guard those from each other, or do they seek out each other’s company?  Have you ever had any harm done to females by other females when keeping them in groups?  Any other observations you’ve seen with yours would be great.

      Here is a picture so you can see what I mean.  The Black Neons still have their regular black lower stripe, it is only the upper stripe that has turned from white to gold:

    I don’t really want anyone guarding nests or fry, that is why I am avoiding pairs.  I actually really like the T. leeri and have looked into them extensively before, but it seems with T. leeri there is a higher chance of having a rouge individual that will not do well with the other fish as compared to with the T. chuna.  I think I’m okay with just the Ancistrus being the big fish – it actually makes me a little nervous to see larger fish with smaller fish.  My Ancistrus is 5 1/2 to 6 inches, and even though I know he won’t even go after free swimming fry he still makes me a bit nervous now and then, just from his size.

    From the video it doesn’t look like they are actually nipping each other or outright fighting. They’re acting the same way I’ve seen a couple of my females do to each other sometimes. Have you ever seen the males actually nip each other, or is it always just show like that?

    Would the Trichogaster leerii be okay with fish an inch or less in size, even though it gets to about 5 inches? Some of my Cories are quite young, and I don’t want them eaten.

    Hi, what are the dimensions of the tank please?

    The dimensions are 48 by 18 by 21 inches, or 122 by 45 by 53 centimeters.
