crossochelius and labeo compatibility
i don't know if it's the right section...anyway i have started my first aquarium 3 months ago and my seller sold me a labeo bicolor and a crossochelius siamensis.
Now i know that this two fish aren't compatible: in effect the labeo, when see the crossochelius on the bottom of the aquarium, chase him.
I have a rio 125: what i must do? i redeliver this 2 fish? Or i keep the labeo and deliver the crossochelius?

I'm not sure that tank is big enough for the labeo. They are very active and can be very aggressive fish, as you are now learning. It might be better if you got rid of him.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Agreed with Mommy. The Red tailed shark needs more room and is highly territorial, and they're both mid-bottom dwellers. You'd be safer keeping the siamese algae eater, because he's much more peaceful and will be a lot more tolerant sharing the tank with others. You can also keep them in groups without issue, but of course, they do get pretty big - about 5" in length. Keep that in mind while stocking the tank.
