What is the current size of your redtail? He may be behaving himself now, but that doesn't mean he won't change as he matures/grows - especially since you have already seen aggression towards the one molly. Unless you have had him prior to getting this new tank you have only had him for three weeks at the longest, and seen aggression in just that short time. Being cool looking is not a good enough reason to keep incompatible fish, jmo.

I had a black Molly in there, and he chased it 24/7, and ended up having to separate them. Ended up setting up my old 10 gallon tank, and putting my molly in there. He gets a long great with the other fish in my tank. Too cool looking to get rid of! IMO
That's a great fish. They usually don't exceed 4 inches in length and can be some very nice patterns. Hypancistrus inspector is called a Snowball Pleco.

Never too far from crazy

Had the RTS for about 6 months now. Anyone know anything about caring for the Inspector? Says he's carnivorous. . I'm just worried my cory cats are going to eat any food that I might put in for my pleco at night.
