    That is cool to read about your petricola. You can write all you want about your fishes' tactics, thanks for sharing.

    It's true that eggs and if one happens to hatch, babies would be eaten up quickly in a cichlid tank, but given you have enough fish as it is, one is better than two (IMO). They like groups, and there is no room for a group.

    I've kept a group of 12 petricola in my 125 with cichlids for many years, never had any baby catfish turn up. The multipunctatus in the 75 were fairly good at it, I managed to raise almost a dozen of their young ones.
