Hi Gary,

I keep them with Ps. tenellus, gertrudae, mellis and signifer. I've also
some small Tateurndina occellicauda with them. This works well, but you
should have a heavily planted tank for them.
Just for getting fry you need to take them in an extra tank. Otherwise you
will get a lot of hybrids, if they are not be eaten.
