What are all the dimensions of the tank? What filtration is on it now? What do you think would be your water change schedule?

tank is a fluval uno 600. 68ltrs, 600x300x350.
Watr changes would be aprox 20 / 25 ltrs week. I will be installing a fluval 105 with flockking, carbon and sintered glass. I wanted sand substrate and rocks.

What about those nice tiny Neolamprologus.

They do well with the substrate and rocks you want to put into your tank.

Everything else would be far too big for that little tank you got.

Just take a look :ezpi_wink1:

may i suggest you doing some research on them. there are lot of different species and their sizes and attitudes vary greatly. this way you have an understanding of them before you go out and get some that aren't compatible or get too big.

What are your thoughts on Neolamprologus multifasciatus. Had a loot on the web, these look like a possible candidate.

ditto with nanaglen. ive had a neolamprogulus brichardi (lamp. brichardi) for a LONG time. i bought him as a tiny fry, and he was raised in a 2.5g, then a 8g, then a 15g, and now hes in a 30g hex. he has grown a fair amount, and is about half his supposed size. he gets along with any fish, and he is fine with my africans. he swims right along with them. previously, he was with a krib and auratus, but the auratus spazed on any tankmates. i tried puting him with my Africans, and the auratus picked fights right away
