I've never kept Germans, lol, so I can't really answer your question very well either. Personally, I would stick with one species, but I've READ of people keeping both with no issues. One thing to keep in mind with the Bolivians (not sure about the Blues) is that they *can* be very fussy with their tankmates. I've seen several instances where they don't 'take' to their new room-mates, and it can be very ugly - even unto death. BR's are picky when it comes to mates, as well. They like to 'choose' their own mate, so simply adding a female into a tank with a male won't always work out the way you hope. Most people like to grow out 6 or so juvies until a pair has formed, then rehome the rest - obviously this isn't something you'll be able to do at this point in a tank that size. Letting your little one swim solo might be the best way to go, but if you do choose to try to get another one, be sure to have a tank on stand-by should trouble arise. . .
