    Hi all

    Forgive me if this has already been asked, but has anyone got any experience of keeping the two together? I have a pair of cacatuoides in a 55g and am wondering whether this would work? The tank is fairly heavily planted and lots of driftwood in there too. So sight lines would be ok. And I've no interest in breeding so would probably go for two female rams.

    My worry is my female cacatuoides has been fairly aggressive with other female cacatuoides in the past when I tried setting up a harem. Any advice, words of warning, or other possible suggestions as always would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    The 2 species are different not only in morphology but also in breeding behavior/requirements. I don't think you need to worry about interspecies aggression if the tank has clearly delineated territorial boundaries. Intraspecies aggression is usually much worse than interspecies aggression.
