Default Looking to add gold moshi

I am looking to add 1m/2f gold moshi from Greg to an established 105G with a foot print of 48x20. The tank currently has 30 2"-3" tropheus moops, 12 2"-3" duboisi and several small BN. The water is perfect with weekly water test and change. I am not too concerned about breeding until i get a bigger tank (hopefully in a few weeks, but that is up in the air). Should i be worried about aggression problems from the moshi? I feed my tank 2-4 times daily with NLS. I have large pellets that can be used to feed the moshi (too big for the moops).

I am also considering getting 1m/3f gold moshi, but that is really pushing my budget.

Any advice would be great.

Yes, I want to order them from Greg. However, I am concerned about aggression if i get a group of 1m/2fm in a 105G.

I think you may have problems with a small group where they will be the largest most dominant fish. But having said that pairs can work if the female has enough hideouts and can dissapear amongst the other inmates. Can you post a pic of the tank so we can see thr decor? Thanks.

A 4 ft tank is not long enough for the larger petro variants. Between the small number of Petros you're considering, and too small of a tank, I do not see this ending well for you.

You will end up with 1 live and 2 dead moshi.

thanks everyone for ruining my dream to keep beautiful fish. JK, i was kinda unsure since this will be my first time keeping petro's.

i am in the process of trying to get an aquarium with a footprint of 72x36x36. My boss approved the money and of the aquarium.

The only problem right now is getting the aquarium inside the house. I would have to modify my front door to get the aquarium inside the house. The boss didn't approve modifying the front door. Logistics alone might cost me $400

Why not go for orthognathus? The ikola and tricolour are great.

my wife, she wants fish that stands out. About a year ago, I had a group of 20 WC morii ikola. my wife bickered with me constantly about why my fish are so dull and black. we went to a restaurant that had an aquarium full of blood parrots and she told me why can't i keep those fish instead. btw, she thinks the red bulu point is boring as well.
