Will they all see each other as company?
They often form species specific groups so it would be a safer bet to up your numbers of the pandas and the Sterbae. And in my experience the Julii are very shy and seem to need a larger group to be happy.

Thank you Mediaman. I have checked the link you kindly enclosed. The information has helped me decide that I will probably get a couple more Sterbei and a couple more Pandas as I will be certain that way that no-one will be lonely.
