    Duckweed would be my choice. Lower light requirements than most other floating plants, spreads very fast & the fish will love eating it. The mbuna will really hammer it for the first few days until...

    I'd go with any of the Julidochromis except Regani. I'd probably choose Ornatus or Transcriptus. I've had Calvus with Multies & it didn't turn out too great. Once the Calvus got to about 4" they were...

    Minor damage from aggression (lifted scales, torn fins etc) usually heals pretty quickly with good water quality. The most common side effect of aggression damage to fins is fungal infection. There...

    I don't see the point of having a medicine cabinet for any fish. Provide the right kind of diet, don't overfeed & most importantly keep the water quality really good & there shouldn't really be any...

    You don't have to buy all of the mbuna at once. Instead do some research on each species you want to keep & find out what the species temperaments are generally like. When it comes time to stock,...

    I'll add Rustys, Maingano & Afra to the above species suggestions. 14-16 is a good number for your size tank. 30 is way too much when they hit adult sizes. You could do an all male tank that only has...

    Pseudotropheus Crabro still get to about 4" so really need a 4ft 55gal tank. You should also keep more than 2 or you will be very likely to have aggression issues. Seeing as you need a 55gal tank for...

    I'd say you have G. Altifrons there. Here's a pic of one of my true G. Surinamensis for comparison. Mine are only about 7" so they are not fully grown yet but they will get to about 12" in the next...

    I agree with not putting any Malawis in that size tank. There are a few options for Tangs though.

    You could do 1 x neolamprologus pulcher or brichardi
    1 x julidochromis transcriptus or dickfeldi...

    I think that would be dramatically overstocked. I assume you would be prepared to do a few water changes each week but I don't think there's much you could do abou the territorial aggression issues...

    Personally I prefer maingano to johanii but that's just because I already have electric yellows in my tank & didn't want the Yellow females of johanii.

    The yellowish fish you have definitely are...

    Excellent advice above. Personally I think a 55gal tank is the minimum for mbuna.

    I wouldn't choose Angelfish to go in your tank. The Convict will soon bully it & chew at it's fins. The Otos will probably be on the menu for the Ctenopoma once it gets big enough to eat them. It...
