I have 3, half inch spilo cf's and one gold spilo a little over an inch.
My plans are to keep them together and move them out of my 10 gal
to my 40 gal as soon as I can. The gold is probably 3 mo. old (guess),
and the others are about 1-2 mo. old. (another guess). The gold seems
to keep to himself while the CF's stick together.

Considering growth rates, overcrowding in the 40 gal, and good water cond.
How long will it take for them to be big enough to have to seperate and move out?
From what I gather, from this site, is that spilos in particular will shoal
successfully while juvies, and possible a short time into thier adult life.

Has anyone ever kept Gold spilos, and spilo CF's together for such a time period
in thier lives?

I have both, a school of spilos and a lonely cf. I was thinking about introducing them together in the same tank, but got a little worried. Sorry I could not provide more info for you, but i just wanted to tell you to keep us posted on how things turn out. Im sure there will be alot of people wondering.

After reading this, I think imma try it out. Gotta wait another month or so for my G.spilos to catch up to my 4inch Cf. We will see, and ill keep you posted.

MAD - You have a tank of SpiloCF or G.Spilos? A tank of CFs must be nice if that is what you have. Do you have any pics?

It hasn't been long since i posted, but i've noticed something. my gold seems to be quite complacent w/ the spilo CF's. I mean he gives them free roam of the 10 gal. now the CF's are <1" and the gold is 1.5".

just a preliminary observation as to the mannerisms of the two species growing up together.
