I heard that Ternetzis eat more and can be more territorial than Caribes. Is this true? I am going to buy 6-3 inch fish of one or the other but I don't want my fish to look all beat up like some pics I have seen of Caribe tanks. Kinda leaning towards Terns now. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. I want them to be as aggressive as possible without major fighting.

agression usually depends on the individual fish. go with what ever speicies you think look better. or get 3 of each.

ternz are sometimes known as more aggressive then caribe, but caribe are supposed to be the most aggressive out of the pygo family ie: pirya, caribe, redbelly's, and ternz....my caribe are beautiful right now...they scrap alot in my tank but no fin nips or anything...i heard ternz grow pretty damn quick, quicker then caribe at that...i have 2 rbp's, and 4 caribe in my tank...everythings looking a o k...IMO get some caribe...or like NJ says, 3 of each...having less battle wounds on your p's will also need lots of hiding spots for them, just so if they're getting chased they can take a breather...and more hiding spots equals more territory the fish have to claim...hencing more hiding spots then fish = better

heres a pic of my caribe...notice no missing fins or anything

I think my tern has a bit more attitude about his territory than my caribe...Both are great fish to own...Personally I would do as mentioned and consider a mixed shoal.

i'd pick a shoal over a solo fish too. Rhoms are awesome but a shoal devouring its food is wicked.
