Caribas can live with other pygos, but they will have a more aggresive influence on your tank, I've noticed ever since adding my caribas in with my Super reds, everyone is more aggresive and the frenzy is much more exciting, the only problem is lip biting
.

As for Compressus, they are serrasalmus so they can not live with other fish, they seem to be pretty aggresive, nothing notable like altuvie or rhoms though.

bring the compressus back like now or asap and pick up atleast (2) more cariba if you only get one they will kill each other.

How large is your tank and how much filtration do you have?

Hes asking how many times your filter will filter the water in your tank per hour. They are usually rated gph or gallons per hour.

I have a compressus, hes small, only about 3.5-4 in, and is very shy. He wont stand anything in his tank. He killed a pleco the first night i put him in. If you put more feeders then he can eat in one night i will awake to a tank floor of dead feeders. He really only comes out at night and have only seen him eat once in two months.

I am hoping that he will come out of his shell soon.
