Has anyone here kept the N. Sexfasciatus. I have a 5 ft 120 gallon tank, with 16 Petro Ortho Ikola. The Sexfasciatus are also found in Ikola. I'm tryiing to stay in the area Ikola or Tanzania, for a Biotope tank. Anyone have any opinions on adding 5 or 6 to the tank, to get a pair? Would a single work if they are too aggressive otherwise?

Never tried it.... my guess is that a single would work... not so sure about a pair.

I have keept sexfasciatus for many years together with Petroes without major problems. It is obviously not optimally since sexfasciatus would not get the best feet. The reason I did it was that I had some snails which I wanted to get rid of. This problem could't sexfasciatus solve, so today I use Helena snails instead.
