I have three rbp's in a 55g. Two of the rbp's are about 2 inch. The other one is about 1-1.5 inch. They all nip at each other, but the little one takes the most damage. Could I put more p's in there without getting a bigger tank to even out the aggresion. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

i have 4 in a 55g at the moment 2 @4-5'' and 2 @ 7-8'' and have no problems no fin nips or damage except on a rare occurrence the more the better to dilute the aggression but i would say 4 is about max ,reds are still territorial but not as much as other pygos i've been told possibly due to being captive bred.
i would expect wild caught p's would need the extra room as they have had better but captive bred reds will not have known any different
