Galaxy Rasbora - any one got some? #1
So I have a pair of male Galaxy Rasboras in my tank.
Initially for first few weeks "Galaxy 1" was a bully - ("Galaxy 2" had practicly no fins and tail, and was not allowed to eat) they settled and now fine together, all fins and tail grown back on and he grown to almost the same size as other. Do you think getting couple more males or few females will disturb the peace? Or will it make them feel great having more of the kind? They sort of started hanging with guppies now like with best friends...

They do much better in groups of six or more if the tank is the right size. Males will spar with each other though so it's good to have plenty of plants they can escape into if it gets to be too much.
