Added to my tank the other day. So far they all get along great--the auratus male had to go, even though he was gorgeous he had been terrorizing the tank slowly but surely getting worse as he reached sexual maturity. Sad but these guys all get along quite well and I shouldn't have that problem.


3 male crabro from the same spawn
