From everything I've ever heard about them, Rhoms are a solitary fish. They will even kill other rhoms that you put with them. Having only one medenai in there with him is just giving him one target. I'd bet that he kills the medenai. But, lets hope not.. good luck.

True, Rhoms should be kept solitary. The only way your Medenai and your Rhom can survive together in the same tank is to put a divider.. even that might not stop the rhom from trying to get to your medenai.

very bad idea! the bigger one of the two will kill the other. i have a spilopleura cf (formerly known as medinai) and it managed to kick the crap out of 4 red bellies (failed shoaling experiments) so far as well as killing another medinai it was in the tank with at the fish store where i bought him. from what i have heard rhoms are just as bad or worse with tank mates. one will die and don't think your rhom is invincible (like most rhom owners do), the biggest of the two will win!
