that means it will only disturb the mid dwellers? if like this its ok for my tank. my tank mid very empty. majority bottom.

hopefully when i add an aro in a few mths time will b fine.

nice catch there Schmike,

i love dorados. just sold off my 16-17 incher one. and i still have one more left. actually depends on individual fishes. i actually had two in my comm tank. had to catch one out cos that one was terrorizing everyone around and at that size i was afraid of the consquences considering i had quite a few oddballs inside. watch out for their food man. they eat like pigs literally and also cos they never stop moving, their metabolism rate is very high so expect them to eat non stop and also probably eat most of your food before the rest of the guys can reach them! happy keeping
