Hey guys,

Just a up-date on my 83 gallon Tanganyika Cichlid tank.
I just purchased 3 Neolamprologus leleupi.

So now I have some color in my tank, along with 5 J. Marlie.

The Julies are far from pleased with the new tank mates. And they are giving a fair amount of fight. But no damage, and it seems to be settling down.

Whenever you add new fish to a tank containing cichlids it's best to rearrange the rocks/decor to break up the established territories.
If you want to breed the leleupi I'd recommend finding or making a "cave" that the female can get into but the male can't. Males tend to be quite rough, and the female will have much better chances of surviving (not to mention spawning) if she can escape when necessary.

I can't agree anymore, I was about to say this. And they look very nice!
