This is a video that I found that is a perfect example of ATF and odoe pike not being good tankmates:

Just a question since I’m planning to get one for my community tank. Would you say they prefer being in groups or just one lone pike among others ?

A good video showing interesting behavior of 2 odoe pike (male and female) when housed in the same tank:


Even in a large aquarium, the 2 odoe pike still fought and made a pecking order, with the smaller male on top.
