Will my two one inch long Trophs make it in an 85 gallon, 5 foot long tank with plenty of hiding places. They will be in with a group of Peacocks (about 12) that are as large as 5 inches, 7 Yellow Labs that are 3 to 4 inches and three mature Julidochromis Transcriptus. I think that I am more worried about the 2 1/2 inch to 3 inch Transcriptus than the rest. Any input here will be appreciated. Thanks.

I would probably bet money that those peacocks will mistaken them for a meal.

Now you could try and release them near the rocks and hope for the best... probably feed the tank right after the you release the fry and they have made it into hiding.

you'd be gambling no doubt. they'll get nailed the first chance the peacocks get.

Thanks for all of the replies. I appreciate the input on this. I thought that this would be a problem. I have these two Trophs fry that are about one inch long. I presently have them in a 10 gallon tank with some Albino Bristlenose Plecostomus fry. I have never kept them before and wanted to get an idea of how large I should let them grow in this 10 gallon tank before introducing them to an 85 gallon tank full of Peacocks up to the size of 5 inches. I even have the option of putting only one Troph in the 85 gallon tank and the other one in a 135 gallon tank full of adult Peacocks if that would be better.
I guess that I should grow them out to a minimum of 2 1/2 inches long in the 10 gallon that they are presently in. I am changing 20 to 25% of their water every two days right now. They are eating NLS "Grow" formula and seem to be doing OK so far. I am adding baking soda and Epsom salt to the tank when I do the water changes. The tank temperature is at 79 degrees F.
