What silvery fish did you guys try keeping with your Odoes?

Are you stating a myth or do you have experience?

A great deal of the Charicins have a bad rep for being aggressive. For the most part aggression can be avoided by simply giving them room.

No personal experience here but i do know a guy who kept an odeo with a few Tinfoil barbs and it killed all of them

From what i've heard Odoes are like alot of fish some are Very aggressive and others are very calm

You are right about the space thing More room = Less aggression

from my experience and what ive heard,majority of odoes are only aggressive to sliver fish.
some are all out killers,and then you get the few calm ones.
