I haven't kept the Dennisons before but i suspect it may be the same thing with them. Maybe grow out the little fish you have first before you go for the bigger fish. Aahhhhh...I would go nuts trying to stock a 125 with community fish. So many fish I would want. lol
Yep, we go nuts and that's why we end up with so many tanks! lol.
As far as Dennisons, they were one of my very first fish. They are great fish, and even though they are in the barb family they are some of the most peaceful fish I have. Actually, they ARE the most peaceful of all my fishes.
My full grown Dennisons (6") don't go after anyone. I have kept then with neons, no problem. I trust them so much that recently I added a handful of pricey one inch dwarf cichlids to their tank without a moment's hesitation. My Congos? That's a while other story...Congos are piranhas in disguise, lol. Same goes for Columbian Tetras!!
