Unless his gang is called the Frufru Fancy Francies, those prances aren't likely gang related.

they are super beautiful fish!! and they are in a gang. constant territory wars against my loach and knife. although i dont think they loach and knife even know.... :huh: i might trade mine in though as ive decided on getting smaller fish and concentrating more on plants in my show tank... would be sad to see them go though...

my advice to anyone getting these or thinking about it is to have lots of swimming room and get several. they love each other. mine are all best friends. i wouldnt sell one without the other, thats why i want to find someone to take all of mine rather than trade them in and not know if they get to stay with one another. one beautiful thing about them is their full grown size. not too many cats get to that ideal of a size. most of the ones i find attractive get to like 17 feet long....
