    Topic rhom cohabs

    Post by sleepybuddah on Thu Feb 10 2011, 21:39

    Hey I was thinking that rhom cohabs might have a higher successful rate when the rhoms themselves are big. All the videos Ive seen with rhom cohabs are of bigger fish. What do you guys think?

    Yes this has occurred to me also, possibly when they have achieved a certain size they don't feel they have to compete for territory so much or something along those lines, the size of the fish maybe speaks for it's self or is the statement possibly....maybe they just just realize that a fight between larger rhoms could easier result in death for both fish and so are more picky about when they do get into it with each other lol
    Just my thoughts anyway Laughing

    I agree 100%, I think once they are established at a certain size you can Cohab them better.

    What or vids have you seen of large rhom co habs Sleepybuddha?
    I know of this one and it ended after 6 months and 2 dead fish, not surprising really when you see how co habing stresses them i think.

    Thats the one I was referring to, I still remember the black and white. I've seen other ones too, I'll try and find them. I didnt know that this one ended after 6 months. I dont remember the action going on between the rhoms though, I couldve sworn they were just hanging out and not doing too much. Its been a long time since Ive watched the video. It would be nice to have a shoal of them in a pool or something. Smile

    I would think this to be true with any species. IMO I think any large full grown piranha can be housed together under the right circumstances a lot easier, and without as much stress as when their little. You'd still need a big ass tank, and they'd need to be fed very well. I'd love to see a zoo sized aquarium filled with rhoms,sanchezis,macs,elongs,pygos ect... Bounce

    One of the problems with these cohabs is, that most of them are (unknown) mixed species cohabs.
    Rhombeus is in reality a complex, not just one species. There are at least three different species included so with a cohab, there is always a bog chance you are housing different species together...

    You mean you pick the piranha and they pay for it, I wouldn't mine doing that. Very Happy

    credo che più che all'età il tutto sia principalmente legato ai galloni a disposizione, non credo che sia fattibile avere una così grande quantità di galloni a disposizione per rischiare la morte di qualche esemplare!!
