MY Africans are often shy with people around and I was wondering if there were any dither fish that would be safe in their tank. I currently have 2 red zebra 1 johani 1 kenyi and one unidentified peacock. It is an all male tank and I also have a featherfin syno. Before you tell me that it is understudied I want you to know that I did it on purpose and everyone gets along great.
I also had a question regarding my kenyi. He near the bottom of the dominance "ladder". When I got him he was yellow but after being introduced to the other fish he turned blue with just a hint of yellow. Does this mean he is a female or is he exhibiting sub dominate male coloration? Just as side note he was the only kenyi in the display tank and my other fish do not harass him like they would with a female.
Almost forgot. It is a sixty gallon tank. Well filtered, heated, etc. It also has a surplus of caves so each fish has been able to claim it's own territory. They are not scared of me but often will hide when a stranger walks by or there are multiple people in the room.
Thanks in advance for your help.
I forgot to say that I had a cobalt zebra. (face palm)
