Do you think the RTM would be mean to the poly if the JD was a non factorNot really. Probably could get away with adding a group and letting the fish sort it out- then pulling the ones that are hiding behind the filter etc.
To be clear. If you add 1 it will be THE TARGET. if you add 4- the fish will sort it out without killing your 1 new one. You might lose fish but it gives the chance for 1 to get his place in the pecking order.
And as everyone is about to post 3 pages of it, I’ll go ahead and add my voice to the echo chamber. Tank is too small for any of the fish listed long termm
I’ll be honest I’ve got a male Nicaraguan that’s supposedly mild aggression- and he will absolutely stomp to death anything in the tank that’s half his size or bigger. Anything.I suppose those two look too much alike. Maybe a cichlid like a blood parrot would not be touched. And yeah I suppose the tank may be a bit small so that is a problem too….
As long as you realize, a 55 will not a large enough tank for both (or even 1 motaguensis) in the very near future.I currently have one delhezi and JD in a 55. Both are juvies and my fish store just got some RTMs in. Would it be worth a shot to try ONE juvie RTM??
