Hi Ben (it's been awhile &#128522,

The toman emas (as per Dr. Ong vid), is a different species from micropeltes? Is this the same as Maruliodes? Those commonly found around 6-8 inches in LFS?

I am tempted to add a same size into the comm tank.

Did some online research and found most Channa will turn mean overnight and might slaughter the entire tank. 😮

Only pleuro and Maruliodes have some degree of comm success. Might go that route instead of getting a micropeltes.

the cost of the fish is not the problem, the problem is that it will eat up many more times its worth in tankmates
