A mixed group of Satanoperca will work ok provided you don't allow them to interbreed - I kept S. leucosticta in with S. daemon for a few years without problems. :-) It sounds as though the small fish is a runt. This happens sometimes and there's little you can do about it. No doubt it's the target ...

I'd say lack of numbers is causing the aggression - Satanoperca and most of the 'true' Geophagus are gregarious fishes which form social hierarchies. In a small captive group it's not uncommon for one specimen to become hyper-dominant as in your case. Changing the décor around won't help since these...

Aha you finally got a copy Jim! :D I had a look through the book when Henri originally posted this fish and couldn't match it to any of the described species. Dr. Tan doesn't mention red in the caudal of G. zebrinus but neither blue in the dorsal of G. scitulus which some specimens do have so maybe ...

No problem Odyssey. The one I want is: Kim, I.S. (2009) A review of the spined loaches, family Cobitidae (Cypriniformes) in Korea. Korean Journal of Ichthyology, 21 (Suppl.): 7-28.

And I don't mind it in Korean!

Hi Jim given its natural range I don't think H. yunnanensis is likely to have been in the trade and reckon mattyd's fish is this one: http://www.seriouslyfish.com/profile.php?genus=Homaloptera&species=[pl]sp.+%27H01%27[%2Fpl]&id=1426 Agree that the original one posted by Sphaerichthys is probably H....
