Awsome fish. Work great with Fire Mouths, Jack Dempseys, Plec's and other large fish. I've found that single specimens are less aggressive towards tank mates than if they are paired off. Provide lots of caves and plants for territory establishment. Slate makes a great place for spawning, but beware of protective parents. They seem to like wood structures in their territories. They also like to move things, like rocks and other fish, to suit they're needs. Really nice fish, so if you have a tank with enough space and suitable tank mates seriously consider one.
