  1. Default Small African Biotope

    I'm considering doing a relaxed (by relaxed I mean I'm not going to be too concerned with making sure everything is 100% accurate) African biotope in the new 30g set-up I got. Off the top of my head I don't recall the filter, though it's a high current filter rated for a 55g, though once I see it running if it's too high I'll make a diffuser for it.

    I would love to have an African butterfly fish, and I looked up the leopard ctenopoma, though it sounds like they might appreciate more room than a 30g. I was wondering if there was anything similar that might be a better fit, or if I should just drop the whole biotope idea and just find an assortment of fish that have the same requirements and go with that.

    What about Kribensis? They are a fun little african cichlid that could go in a 30.
    Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.

    I'm suddenly feeling very silly for not thinking of those. Much thanks.

    Could also go with African dwarf frogs for an interesting bottom dweller.

    I'm really not into the ADF. Plus the tank is a little too deep for them.

    Ah, I guess a 30 has a different depth print than a 29.

    You could get some jewel cichlids or some of the small tanganyika shell dwellers

    Jewels get a little on the large side for a 30gal but shell dwellers would be great alright!!

    I used to keep African butterfly fish... amazing fish. Just make sure they have floating plants and/or tall plants to hide in. And a lid.... two of mine jumped out when i left the 'feeder lid' off one night.
    20gal- Honey gourami's, Endlers, otto's and minnows.
    22gal- 2 Honey gourami's, Bichir senegalus, apisto hongsloi
