      Should be fine... just be sure to watch and observe them the first couple days. Look for any signs of possible problems or conflicts among the fish... if any, make any 'moves' or arrangements that you feel is necessary to solve or better the situation! Hope everything works out for you. Good luck! :thumbsup:

      I think your biggest concern would be the growth rate of peacock bass. Considering that they will grow about an inch a month until they are 12", I would be a little concerned about the dats, but otherwise I think you would be alright.

      I have two monocs and they don't really bother my other tankmates. They are currently housed with a silver aro, an RTC, a TSN and a royal clown knife. As long as something won't fit in their mouths, tehy are typically very peaceful.
