I plan on just keeping the tank more open; There are 3 (2.5inches) in a 60 gallon; which is plenty of room for now. The funny thing is, they fin nip each other, but then again they also like to stick together where ever they go, like a love hate thing. Is there a particular size they reach and just become intolerant to other fish including their own species? Whoa, as I am typing this, 2 of them are going at it fighting each other.....dang it. When they eat feeders, they only eat half of it, and let the rest float around....I am begining to wonder whether they eat that way or do they do that for their own amusement. haahaha.
For other spilo owners, how does yours act and what should I do to minimize aggresion amongst each
I turned on the lights, and they stopped fighting. Now, they're all scared; does light stress these fish out a lot? I hope it doesn't but enough so they don't concentrate on killing each other.....anyone here leave the lights on?
