Cariba's and terns are pretty nasty in some cases. But it is mainly on the fish's own attitude.

EmJay.. Ive noticed that you go through so may set-ups and fishes than all of the board combined. Isnt it just a week ago you were asking about salt-water? Before that RBs, then Rhoms, then snakeheads, then sharks, then giant squids..etc Its ok though, you are what we consider a hobbyist and true hobbyists just dont stick to one kind.
Good Luck, man!!! :smile:

No, Spilos!!! HaHaHa...

They are so aggressive that they kick the sh*t out of each other. They are pretty nice though. I have only had the pleasure of reds and these spilos, so caribe could very much well be great, i dunno. I do know that the difference between my old reds and my spilos now is infinate. They truely do swim like community fish in the tank. Espeacially when I am in front. I wish that some of you guys lived closer to LA. Im sure that once you see them, you would aggree.

Everyone has thier own faverite P. Usually its the type they currently own.

I'm very happy with my 7 caribe. This is the biggest pygo shoal i've had though. Only ever kept reds (two), and now own a rhom. They don't compare. I'd like to see (own), a spilo shoal.

The best combinations of looks and aggression is a geryi tank... but it takes a big tank.
Isnt clay putting together a geryi tank with a 200? I would have thought he would need more then that. I think he has 12 in there. Pretty ballsy. But yeah, that could very well be the most aggressive. See the trend:

Increasing aggression----->
Pygos (reds, caribe, yellows, pirays <-- not necisarrily in that order), then the serras (spilos and geryi)

THAT is why I prefer serras.

Spilos can sometime kill each other off, or the basic fin nipps, the Piraya would be a good alternative, but your gonna have to have $$$ to get a good shoal going.
