if you're just getting into the shoaling thing, i'd give reds or caribe or reds and caribe a shot. they seem to be the least complicated pygos to maintain and shoal like all hell. they're a good place to start and you can add other pygos once you get the hang of it.

Sound advice, banana man...


The three pygo species are shoalable. As far as serra's go, some can be kept in a group (serra's don't shoal!) if you have a large enough tank (if you can't provide at least 30-40 gallons per fish, don't even bother), but it's not advicable, as it basically goes against their nature.

WTF you are way off thier mate,
that would mean you could shoal irritans, mannys etc... i dont think so.
all of the pygocentrus family can be shoaled but this dose not mean that you wont get casulites i.e. carbie, piraya, ternetzi, natteri.

Many will disagree, but I think the nicest shoal is all the same kind.. f.e. a 100 gallon with all 5 P's Caribe... they seem to be the most active this way.

I fully agree - it's also most natural (in so far we can talk about "natural" when talking about aquariums), because none of the pygo species share the same natural range.
But it's a metter of personal preference...
