"I had just started in the fish world, about 5 years ago. Had always been interested, just couldn't afford it! Anyway, we were graced with a 55 to begin with, and were given about 9 africans with it. I knew little of these fish so began research. I did my best, however, I was told a green terror was an african and I knew no better at the time. When I went to pick up this fish I about fell over. He and a HUGE pleco were stuffed in a TEN gallon tank with no filter or heater or anything. Now this terror was a big boy, he was at least 11 inches!! And the pleco, at least that big too. I felt so bad for them I took them both. Brought them home, dropped them in my 55 with the 9 other very much smaller, unsuspecting, and africans none the less, fish... guess what happened?? Absolutely NOTHING! They all got along amazingly and I had a strange mix for sure! I think my green boy was just so happy he had a tank he could turn around in. He is a very peaceful guy. We have since upgraded to a 160. He does nothing but spend his days playing in bubbles and likes to be pet and will eat from my fingers. It has been years we have had him and the others. They are all a very peaceful bunch. This is our mix: 2 very large plecos, the green boy is still around, an ob peacock, a normal peacock, an albino/orange peacock, 2 blue peacocks, a kenyi, a firemouth, a bumble bee, a sunburst, a big knife fish and a fat boy frog!! All are varying sizes from barely an inch to 11 inches. The tank remains peaceful. Whenever I see agression building, I simply rearrange the tank and we are good for about 6 months or so. Also, we provide lots of hidding places, big and small. They are also a mix of male and female as we have babies now! (I have separated the babies into their own 55) We don't even have a tv in our living room, lol we watch the amazing collection of beautiful fish we are so lucky to have!"
