Just added them to their tanks. Everything kind of went how I anticipated.... chewy (het) and dusty (hrp) are testing hulk out. At first I was worried because he wasnt showing any signs of aggression back but looked like he was coming around after about 30 min. He got nipped a couple of time on his head. Gonna watch them but he did die down and looks like hes not gonna have it. Dory showed no aggression at all which was what I was expecting.


As for too too my daughter named him yeah I know. Zeus immedialty gave chase but im thinking it was more out of curiosity. ...I hope

Hulk looks like he is figuring it out. He should settle in nicely.

The bickering is still going on but atleast hes getting in the mix. When ever dory is out it seems to die down. This little guy can eat man. He doesnt care who is flaring their gills at him as soon as I drop some food in he become oblivious
I think they will be fine

As for the gold nugget im not so so sure zeus seems pretty pissed

Pearsei grow very fast and he will be bigger than his tankmates in no time. This will help calm things down.

And yes they like to eat!

Don't feed too much. We had a member, Cebosound, who lost his pearsei at 6 years.

I remember seeing older posts about his being sick and never knew what happened. Sad :(

I portion control all my daily feeding by measuring out my different foods and putting them in a day of the week pill box.

Usually I don't enjoy plecos like other fish but your gold nugget pleco looks terrific. I hope things work out.

Found old posts, and it was less than 2 years old. Everyday feeding is not an issue for the first year.
