    Ok here we go - 6 month check in!

    The first below is the largest of the group. The 2nd is the biggest SS just because I like this fish. 6 months went by fast!

    Thanks guys.

    Well Im kind of in the awkward position of having a small group (5 left). The smallest is clearly being outcompeted for food and has started hiding (behind the filter here). In my experience whenever I have a smaller group one always starts to lag behind and eventually dies. I think I can probably make it another 2 months or so for the final best fish. I was hoping for a pair but Im not sure if the group can hang on that long with this limited number left. Another option is to combine them with some rams and corys in a larger tank to basically act as dithers.

    I wonder If you can decrease agresion and pecking order by putting fish in the tank other than discus ? Did you have any positive experience doing this in the past ?

    How big is their tank? I placed mine in a 40g when they were around 2" and then a 55g when they were still around 3" and even though there is a smaller one, there never has been any aggression or fighting

    Thanks guys - yea they are in a 29 gal. I think the next move it to move to a 75 w a couple of pairs of rams and corys. Hopefully the increased space and other fish can help like you mentioned.
