To those of you who have been keeping these fish for a while now, how does their temperment compare to other botias? Are they on the mellow side, like striatas/histrionicas, or more aggressive, like modestas? And do we know how large they can get?
I have some striata who are so shy that I rarely see them--they must come out to eat sometimes, because I they have grown (one or two are almost 4 inches now), and all 6 are still alive, but I'm wondering if they'd be happier elsewhere than in their current tank (where I disturb them frequently with plant maintenance and fish roundups to keep the Endler's population under control). Would Angelicus perhaps be bolder in that situation, without eating all my Endler's?
