Is it possible to keep Mbuna in a 20 gallon long?

seriously? I thought they needed to be in a 29 gallon or more. I torn between tanganyikans, mbuna, or two firemouths.

I wouldnt even do 2 firemouths in a 20.


Most mbunas grow large, even the small ones stay around, what, 5-6"?

Not quite the best size for a 20 IMO.

That's what I was thinking. I guess I'll go with tanganyikans. Any suggestions? special requirements?

that's what I was leaning to. Guess I'll get some in a few weeks, unless I change my mind.
