    I have a pair of Apistogramma barlowi and Ivanacara adoketa. Right now they are kept separately, but i want to move the two pairs in a 45 gallon cube planted tank. Other tank mates will be peaceful tetras, flying fox, otto, small corys.

    Can you keep the two species together?

    Two relatively aggressive species in a small (surface area-wise) tank? Good luck; you might be successful, but I wouldn't want to try it. Let us know how it works out.
