Yeah, my LFS's display tank has a Picasso Percula adult pair and a Snowflake Occelaris adult pair. And then a 3rd snowflake. And all have been healthy. The 3 snowflakes even all share the same RBTA.

If i had to take a guess i would say it depends on the fish. I know my lFS has 3 in one tank but I know he removes them if they get too aggressive. I've seen his pairs moved around the shop. lol I think it's just a matter of finding the right fish that work with each other. An LFS has soo many more pairs to work with than we do

Yeah, probably depends on the fishes personality too.

Thanks guys.

I only have i think 19-20 cichlids in the 125g, and its getting crowded fast. LOL

We are either going with a 180 or a 220 for them at some point. We have 2 giraffes and 4 empresses so that is some pretty big fish right there.
