Hey guys, this is my first post on MFK. I have the chance to buy a 4.5 inch Vittatus tiger, as well as a 4.5 inch Cf. Big eye. What would you recommend? I know that the Big eye tiger is supposed to stay a little smaller, but I know almost nothing about their attitudes, and if they are usually similar in personality. Any info/help would be greatly appreciated.

Don’t think you’ll notice much of a difference. Chicxulub Chicxulub may know

I had a big eye that grew to be about 14” and then it stopped growing longer. It just got wider lol. But it’s an impressive fish. Attitude wise they’re the same as VATFs. They’re bossy and will take the top spot in your tanks characins’s pecking order or die trying.
