Yup, the alpha situation should be easy... once he decides to take over, you'll know...

Here are some quick photos of my tank that I just took this morning. Not the best photos, but here they are.
I have one side with plenty of caves and the other side of the tank they have more space to swim and hopefuly to spawn.








And here the two big boys!

I have a group of about 20 small Mobas (2"-3") in my 210. I also have a pair of calvus in with them along with some clown loaches. My Mobas have a long way to go before they start breeding, but before they start, I plan on removing the calvus. I know plenty of people that have calvus with Cyphos/Fronts and are breeding quite often, but my experience with calvus has been different. Previously, the calvus were in a smaller tank with a bunch of yellow labs. The calvus would keep watch for any spawning activity and as soon as the female would lay her eggs - BAM! The calvus would swoop in and devour the eggs. Maybe my calvus has acquired a taste for yellow lab eggs, but I'm not going to let them develop the same taste for Moba eggs!

Just my experience and thought I'd share...

I have white, yellow and black calvus. I'm tempted to let the WC black calvus pair in the tank, but I think I would remove them all.
