dottyback question

150 gallon tank.

Has anyone kept a neon and orchid together if added at the same time?

It may be possible with captive bred specimens, but I highly doubt wild caught will comply to your wishes.

Good luck.

I've been to trade shows and the ones on display are always mixed with each other...several of different species, but all are captive bred. I don't know, however, how they would do one on one. Some fish need to be in groups to disperse any aggressive activity. Odd numbers I've always heard is best, so maybe try three, but no more than five in that sized tank.

With a tank that large I see no real problems, but as others have stated, ensure both are captive bred to be on the safe side. HTH
