Multis with julidochromis transcriptus
« on: July 05, 2017, 10:33:06 AM »
So I setup a 29 tall that I had for a group of multis i got from someone local.  The multis are very entertaining to watch.  Shortly after i added 2 julies to the tank.  The multis have started breeding and barely let the julies out the rock work. 

My question is, should I try and re arrange the rocks and shells so the multis have one side and julies on the other, or would it be better to pull the julies out?

Both are cool fish and fun to own. They are popular species to combine, but notoriously difficult in smaller tanks. Yes, separate territories so you get maximal space between them--go with shells on one side and rocks on the other. See if you can get at least eight inches of clear separation between rocks and shells. At the end of the day it's a challenging combination in smaller tanks and you may need to remove the julies altogether.

Stones came from a local garden supplier.  Sold as river stones.  They were quite large and heavy so i wound up breaking them into smaller pieces.
