Hi John,
Happy New year.
I raise some killies with apistos. Generally, I stick with Epiplatys,
lampeyes and Chromaphyosemions. Many Fundulopanchax and Aphyosemions
that favour the bottom get slaughtered. I made an error a few weeks ago
by putting 20 2cm F. gardneri Mamfense in with 12 or so 1cm A. sp.
vielfleck. The Apistos killed all but one gardneri, which they seem now
to tolerate as one of their own.
About ten minutes ago, I moved some Epiplatys cf olbrechtsi away from
aga Alenquers they'd grown up with, as 2 Alenquers have fry. That was a
long standing relationship.
