I tend to agree with Ingo to a degree. I have been working with
both the G stehlini and the G g eisentrauti and have had no problem
with my adult pairs. I must add that they were acquired as proven
compatible pairs so I can't really contradict what Ingo is saying and
I've not yet witnessed any of this aggression in any of my adult
breeders. The stehlini are much calmer than the somewhat flighty
eisentrauti although the smaller eisentrauti wins thumbs down as far
as the vibrant colors they display.

As far as hatchling/juvenile aggression, I have not seen any. I was also
warmed that as hatchlings/juveniles the eisentrauti could become quite
vicious toward their clutch mates. I have had 2 to 3 month old stehlini
together since they hatched and have seen none of this aggression
whatsoever. As far as the eisentrauti, there may be a little chasing
around by a bully but nothing serious enough that would lead me to
separate them.

Could be that I keep the juveniles in large holding tanks with lots of
hides and branches so they can each claim their own territory but I
think the fact that I feed them all well and on a daily basis keeps them
fat and happy I guess.

These are truly prolific as I can get three clutches from my eisentrauti
(third clutch to hatch in a few weeks) and two clutches from the
stehlini and they make it seem almost effortless.
