Some julis stay small like 3" max (transcriptus, marlieri) , others grow to 6"+. (regani, ornatus). BTW that's not gospel, I'm at work with no reference material so I might have them the wrong way around, I'm trying to put the old grey matter back to work after a fortnight's rest...

Those red-eyes sure are tough little buggers so they probably would be OK with julis. You know when I read tetra I automatically think of the amazonian tetras and not the tougher Africans.

IIRC kribs do OK in neutral water, maybe a little on the acidic side for breeding. I'll have a look in my books when I get home if no-one answers sooner. They're from Africa as well but from the rivers/streams which I think are acidic.

HTH
