    hey again I inquired at my lfs about apistos and to order one she quoted me 35 dollars eek. today I was in the city and found some for 15 dollars yay! my question is will one be ok with corys a small rainbow shark and angels and rasboras as tank mates. if this does not will they work with Julii corys and cardinals I have a blue ram too, should they be separated I tHought I would double check before I purchase one tomorrow .
    second question what about a heckenii cichild sorry spelling on this.

    My apisto was very shy and hid all the time when he was in a tank with large tank mates. I think he'd be happier withot angels and sharks.

    Can I put more than one Apisto together? I love these little fellas. In my 36g I will have:
    7 cardinal tetra
    10 corys (5 julii 5 panda)
    1 swordtail
    1 apisto(was thinking 2 or more)
    1 german ram (maybe)

    I know it can be done, ZeeZ had more than one male apisto in the same tank. I would message him and ask how big it was, how many hiding spaces, etc.
