No tankmates, lives alone in a 40B. Ive always wanted to try and replicate a bit more of a slice of nature and try some small schooling fish like white clouds in with him if he were in at least a 75g. The general thought from everyone was that he would likely eat them off. lol

Been a long time and thought I better update. Scruffy is doing well and is in his permanent home. He went from a 40B to a 65B. It is filtered with an Aquaclear 110 and Eheim 2217. I was going to give the little guy a 75g that I had but with a move into a smaller home it just was not something that would 'fit'.

That's a good looking fish with a well thought out home.

Really nice pictures, thanks for sharing.
