    These are two opposites :) - O. vulgaris is quite large and requires a very large tank, while O. joubini is a pygmy.

    Actually, I think a bimac, which is in between the two and takes a minimum 50 gallon tank would be the best. And they are tank bred.

    Hi Nancy!

    Didn't Colin think G2 was O Joubini? If so.....he is quite a lot bigger that Rummler was..... Is this species still considered a pigmy?

    Oops...I just looked back and it was filosus....
