"I just bought a school of nine! I was in the market for a school of large fish to add to my 75gal which previously only housed a butterfly pleco, a Jack Dempsey, and a mutt-african cichlid. I don't have quite enough space for their full grown size, so I am now committed to buying a larger tank for them. But I couldn't resist all nine. When I saw them at the store they occupied only a third of the 30gal they were in because they schooled so tightly, seeing that there was no way I could break them up. Currently they get antagonized a little by the african, but the Jack acts as a sort of bodyguard. On that note I have noticed they do not get picked on (and in fact chase the antagonizer off) when the light is shut off. Perhaps good to note for those of you about to introduce them into a mildly aggressive tank. Enjoy their activity, but remember they are skittish and even their own reflections trip them up. Happy fish keeping! "
