This fishes are pure evil... Saddly, one female died yesterday.This is territorial aggression. The less dominant females may eventually succumb to stress related illness if not removed. I wouldn't worry about breeding in a tank full of fry predators like yours. You would be better off if you only had a 3 of males in the tank.
Completely overlooked that (being on phone all day).Could this be “Hypoptopoma Sp. Peru”?
I guess it’s a close relative to otocinclus.
Just guess-work, from my side.
Close, but the red in the fins is telltale for P. maculicauda. Those are quite common in the hobby the past two years. O. flexilis haven't been spotted in a while.
I have several of those (and knew what they were - they are often sold as 'red fin' otto). My question - is there much of a difference between them and otto? They do seem to be somewhere between pleco and otto but wanted to check if there was a real biological behavior with regards to food et all.Close, but the red in the fins is telltale for P. maculicauda.

Unless your aquarium is over 6 feet long (longer the better); chances of having tranquility among the angels once a pair form is near zip. I have a 10ftx4ft aquarium and will be 'testing' at some point if the larger space will allow domestic angelfishes to get along with pairs forming. The 120 they were in definitely was not large enough to support more than a single pair (4ftx2ft); mind you for the first 2 years or so you can keep 5 or 7 in that space but as they get older sooner or later the dynamics fall apart - you'd think it would fall apart as soon as the pair forms but it seemed to take a bit longer to completely collapse if raised together. Naturally individual fishes have different personalities and your experience might differ but i tried 4 or 5 times with different sets in the 120 and things always fell completely apart by year 2. This was the aquarium:Guys, this isn't the theme of this forum, but I would like to know if it's ok to buy some angel fish and keep them in my tank.
Do you think it will be okay? I was thinking in 5 angels. What do you think? Does anybody have experience with angels?
