Earlier this year there were several threads about Sids and how many keepers found them to be quite aggressive despite their diminutive size.The irony was others who posted saying that theirs were pussycats.Because of the slant towards the aggressive, I decided against purchasing any @ that time, despite the fact that my LFS had just received a batch.Well, needless to say after going into shop and seeing them constanly for all this time, its like a siren calling to me :).......buy even if I decided to take my chances with the aggression, now the problem is I dont think I have enough room on the bottom for any additional tankmates.Not to mention I am approaching the limit as far as bioload goes.My tank is 90gal, 48"*18"*24". Current residents include 5 B.Striata,5 Syn. Petrico
