I don't have any petros but after seeing some on this and other sites. I think that I would like to make the investment.

You can add them. Either wc, or f1. Trophs can eat just fine in a petro tank. Ive got wild bulombora that eat krill 3x a week w/o issues.

Young f1s are great scavengers in petro tanks. They can pick up food in all the small areas that the Petros can't reach. Plus, it's a kick to watch them grow up

Im also considering putting some trophs and petros together in a 240g. Are famulas generally smaller types of petros? How is their aggression compared to other petros and level of difficulty? Any tips before taking the Petro plunge?

I have found famula to be total terrors. They are small petros, as are trewevasae and tricolors. In a 240, I wouldnt worry about the size. You've got room for the larger variants. Look for f1 if possible. Pm me if you like...I have an adult Longola group I'm looking to sell
