*quote from george about the pics*

Sorry guys, (he says with a smile ), I honestly did not see this thread. The fish have been together about 3 weeks. It is great to see regulars walk in and just stare at the tank and say "OH SHlT " !!!!

These guys are 12"+. The smallest one is taking a bit of grief, and he will have to be removed before long. But they are eatting well (not each other !), and I wanted to try it. I will add a couple more when I get a chance. They do much better in the large tank, even if their fins get a bit tattered.

Someone has shoaled rhoms with reds before in home aquario I believe but unfortunately I dont' have the pics to back it up. If I remember right there were 2 rhoms and several reds in a 240 gallon and they coexisted for almost a year but eventually reds started turning up missing. So it seems inevitable without a very large tank that eventually it will turn into expensive feeders for the last rhom standing but those in that pic are simply housed together till their sold.

Still amazes me that HUGE 12"ers can be in housed in the same tank and still no casualties after 3 weeks. Hey WWC, are you gonna follow-up on this?? I'd like to know if anything happens during the next couple weeks. And try and get some more pix!!!

im going to imagine these rhoms are wild caught and are used to one another to begin with. i dont doubt their incentives to kill each other in the future once they establish territory, but still a neat shot and idea at that!
