L 333 and 278 compatibility ???

hey all just asking...
can these two be kept together without inter breeding and if kept together would they breed within there group... if that makes sense
I was thinking of putting 2 colonies in an ibc... would this work???
as I said just asking.

ok the L333 is a Hypan and likes fast water and is an omnivore.
The L278 is a Peck and likes slow water and is an omnivore.
So they can be kept together as they are from a different family and have the same eating issues as omnivore and should not interbreed. Good luck with your venture cheers jk

Size wise they are also fairly comparable. Just make sure the tank is big enough for both colonies and plenty of hiding places.
