Oh gosh.... Thanks for sharingIf you have a heater in the tank, they will try to hide in between the heater and tank, leading to heater burns. I would put some sort of inline heater from the filter or a plastic case around the heater that is in line with the water flow.
Is your setup with plenty of decor or kinda bare?They do prefer to hide I only saw mine at night
What is the group size that have worked so far in your experience or have seen, I think I will give it a try just to experimentTankamates shouldnt be aggressive. Mine are with polypterus and doing fine. They will always hide during the day. Groups can work but difficult to duplicate consistently.
Wow thanks for sharing!! That's a great idea, I will give it a tryNice! Always loved jags and always wanted to get a dozen or two to grow out together. Haven't had much luck with keeping mine long term, tried two times with a pair each... but this is personal, not for general reasons as generally they are ok and hardy. Lost the first pair on a 1500 mile move. The second pair quickly contracted some bug in my tanks.
The tank mates should not prey on them or be aggressive as in fighting for the same hidey hole or for feed, or be territorial. Smaller tank mates shouldn't fit in their mouth.
If you wanna see them all the time, lean a flat rock against front glass or place a large rock next to the glass and make it the only cover available:
