i am not sure. how do i tell if they are paired?
the two i think are pairs hunt togethor and eat togethor and chase off the msaller one. but they sometimes do take nips at each other.

they are definetly odd fihs

I am also worried about 2 of my rbp's. I have 6 rbp's and 4 have paired of together but the other 2 live on there own. When i say the 2 live on there own i mean seperately. The 2 are the smallest of the lot. Will they be ok of will they be fish food.

yo mate they are about 3 inch. It's really just 1 i worry about more because it just sitts in the castle cave and hardly comes out. The other does come out but stays hidden most of the time.

ya my littlest guy is the same way. he just hides.
and if id ont give the larer ones a lot to eat. he starts getting nips

within a month if he is sitll that much smaller i wll be selling him most likely

im still tryig to figure out if these guys are togethor or not though

I've never heard of p's pairing off that small, but it's a possibility. how big of a tank do you have the 3 reds in? if its big enough, I would add 2 other p's to spread out the aggression more, and take the focus off 1 pygo.
