Puffers tend to do best in a species-only tank.I was wondering how compatible are Col.Sharks with puffers, dragon gobys, Bichir and loaches. I'm just thinking of getting one of these fish since their not community to add to my big tank.
Very similar to South American Pimelodids, keep with fish that like similar water conditions and are big enough to prevent being considered prey. Youngsters (smaller than 12cm) can be kept in alkaline fresh water (with for example rift lake cichlids), but larger fish MUST have salt added to the water in order to thrive.
Initially most medium sized active fish, but with the addition of salt to the water as the fish grow, brackish water fish such as Monos, Scats or large Mollies are the order of the day.
