Well, that's the thing. I favor the synos over the RTS. They're specifically synodontis eupterus, and get to around 8". Neither of them are full grown yet, one is a juvie and is only 3" while the other one might be at around 5-6". The RTS is also a small 3".
I do have a bit of stuff in the tank: 3 large rocks, about 6 broken clay pots that form caves, and a bunch of plastic plants. I'm planning to add more and eventually make it a planted tank, but as for right now, no live plants.
So far it sounds like I'm probably going to have to rehome the RTS, since both the RTS and the synos are territorial. Doesn't sound like a good mix, and I'd like to separate them before they start getting aggressive.
Would it be possible to get a seperate aquarium for just the RTS that's 20g or less? Should I just let the guy grow in the big tank and remove it before it gets beaten up? Or would the RTS just be unhappy in that small of a tank?
