I've never had petros but if I'm gonna get some it will be the red bulu, I may have to start with f1, if I can find some. Thanks for the advice.

I have the same tank, you can see in my signature what I have in mine. I got them all as little 1/2" fry and have raised them all together. Everyone is about 2-3" and doing great!

Awesome tank there.
I been tempted to do the same thing on my 240g and put all my trophs in.
But I guess I just have to wait till I get my 10 footer.
Thank you for sharing.

@ TTSUPRA. (kabayan) thanks for asking this question.

Default Duboisi and moorii don't mix

In my experience Duboisi and Moorii don't mix well. I added a group of 20 duboisi to a group of 12 red rainbows in a 110 gallon tank, and let's just say that the results were devastating. Within a few days the duboisi were all eliminated. You are working with a bigger tank, but before you waste a bunch of money on fish that will be killed, try something different. Your moorii species are typically much more aggressive than duboisi. I agree with the others who said to try petros or possibly a larger species of trophs like brichardi. Good luck with whatever you decide to do though!

Yea, glad you asked bro. cause I was going to ask the same thing when I get my 10 footer like yours (I really like that 10ft tank of yours) I won't be surprise if I see that tank full of red bulu petros from TONELOC. lol.

Considering Ilangi will suffer with any other Trophs combo,I would go for Petros,Cypris and Enantiopus...
If you put 4 Troph groups,one will be dominant and the other 3 will not for sure...
I had same dilemma but my friends who kept Ilangi with other Trophs told me...If U want Ilangi to shine bright,don't put them behind other fish...
