I have a palmas and would like to get a delhezi, but they were so much smaller than the palmas and I didn't want to take that chance. The LFS has a big palmas for a good price, so I might go pick it up early next week.

I think that the delhezi looks better.

Understanding that an upgrade will be in order at some point, I think that you can get a couple more tetras, as well as an african knife. That's one of my favorite fish in the collection. Not much to look at for colors, but what it lacks in that department it more than makes up for in coolness. Unlike other knife fish like the BGK, africans are pretty active during the day. Very cool fish to watch.

How many more tetras? I actually was looking at the African knife. They look pretty cool.

i would get 2 more.

You'd really like the knife. It took mine about 3 months to let me see it though. They are wild, and can take a while to adjust. However, once they get comfortable they are quite active. The congos serve as dithers for the knife, as well.

It's a long video showing an incident between the knife and the big alpha tetra. They would square off from time to time. It's a good depiction of the knife and how it swims. Most of the other fish make an appearance in the video. If you make it through the whole thing, you'll see how it ends.
