    Very nice!
    The gold nuggets can get a little pushy so watch out for that.

    He definitely has an attitude. He is in a 180 though with a ton of territories. The deke hangs out with the nugget but the rest just stay away. He is a bit pushy with the corys too but everybody is doing great.

    I may add a royal pleco in to the same tank but I will keep an eye on them. I want to get a blue panaque but most likely in a seperate tank.

    From what I have seen royals pretty much mind their own business, but I have only gotten to observe them in the lfs.

    Royals can be pretty pushy too. Mine used to chase away anything that came too close, especially at feeding time.
