Further information:
The pelvis is shown with the stocking in this new facility in operation for a few days. The next time will show whether insert the species among themselves the extent of damage or suppression without fighting (constant stress!) Harmonious. For the negative event that this occurs, an aging tank is already set up.
Reasons: it may be that Lepidiol. hecqui with the "Lamprologus" multifasciatus to the Schneckenhausbeet "dispute", since the nature possibly. from the Neol buescheri pair is driven out of the stones. Also, could Neol. tetracanthus - currently juvenile - later known as "troublemakers" prove. The target stocking are then likely to in addition to "multifasciatus" as a group the two "Buescheri" and possibly a "splash of color" the yellow Neol. leleupi remain.
The target species "multifasciatus" (as cavity nesters in empty snail shells) and "Buescheri" (as in rock cavity nesters) were chosen because both species colonize different habitats. The other three types (not in pairs) are so-called companion and derived from "remnants" (terrible term - sorry) my other basins.

The diet of the species is similar, since they tend to be with carnivorous (flesh) belong to a trophic as "omnivorous" staple.
