Well, in my 48gal tank I am planning on having Panda apistos... aright, I already have 2 (1 Male in QT, and 1 Female) and I can readily get another female. I heard they do best in trios, but what have you had best experiences with? Pairs or trios? And, would it be a good idea to add the second female before adding the male to the main tank? I've never had apistos before (Or come to think of it, I have never owned any cichlids before now!) and I don't know how it would work out. Thanks!
