i kept 2 rhoms together for about 3 yrs from the size of a nickel and i have 1 rhom 1 " with 2 rbp 2" in a 110 gallon now from my experience when theyre younger theyre not nearly as bad as when they get older but sooner or later and it will happen the reds will die 1st then eventually u'll have 1 rhom...period!!! unless u get 3 seperate tanks for the rhoms and 1 more for the rbp


110 gallon 2 rbp 2", 1 rhom 1"

The question is are you sure they are Rhoms?? Sounds to me they are some other species.

I was thinking the same thing. "Are they really Rhoms?" Within 6 months, there should've been some casualties in his tank. Besides the fact that they're (I assume) 4" or bigger, 7 Ps in a 55 gal is already too small and his Ps would've already fought over territory and space.

Best thing to do is to post a pix of all his Ps in the tank. Then we can determine if what he has is true.

pics would be nice to determine if they are rhoms good point sccavee.
a 55 gal is way to small for that many p's is also another good point i had 4 reds and sometimes that would be bad enough spot on rhomzilla

uh oh, if there are all 6 months old, then you dont have to worry about the rhoms killings the rbp, you gotta worry about the reds killing the rhoms. The reds would be atleast 3 times larger then the rhoms, then he would be left with 2 reds, then only one. Sounds fishy.

YES! Pygos will eventually take over all Serras!!!
I think you may get some different opions on that.
That possibility is as solid as the Rhoms killing the Pygos before they get bigger than the RBs in 6 months.
