Could someone tell me if having only (2) duboisi in a 30 gallon tank could cause a problem? I have (1) at this time and would like to add another. :help:

Tropheus are a fish that do best in colonies of 15 plus Tropheus. There are occasions were you luck out and you can get 2 or 3 to get along but these cases are rare. Usually what happens is the dominent male harrases the other male and kills it. If there is not enough females they take the brunt of the aggresion as the male sexually matures. The minimum tank size for trophs is about a 55, but a 75 gal is better. You want the longer foot print. If you have any other questions about trophs I suggest you try this site

I know it's not the answer you are looking for but thats the way it is with these fish.
