I found some Gold Spilos for $10 each. A good price but they have horrible fin nip. I mean really bad, I know they grow back fast but is it worth it? I mean I had a piranha losea lot of a fina d it neevr really had the same color as the rest of the fin when it grew back. BTW hese guys are only 1" in length. Let me know what u think

one of the best things for healing fin nips is MELAFIX and you could also arrange tank to its maximum potential and have lots of territories and hiding places :

I actually thought about it, but I just bought 4 baby reds, and the one thing I like about these guys is when they get a little larger they will be able to collectively take down a whole goldfish. I dont know if a SPilo will be able to do that. Not int he amount of time I will be keeping it. I know 4 reds can work together and tear some shibby up.

I would get them. Most LFS dont take care of the fish as well as a good hobbyist (sp) does. Fin nips will happen and they will grow back fairly quick.
