    pterophyllum leopoldi

    Perhaps a silly question but I'm getting six of these little beauties in the new year but read they don't like a lot of flow and I was hoping to put them in my planted tank.

    Convicts in a tizzy

    My Convicts recently laid eggs in their coconut shell only for the Salvini's to overturn it and eat the eggs.The Convicts seem very very put out (understandably) yet the female Salvin seems to take pleasure taunting them but that is probably just me putting human emotions on the fish.
