    Hi All. I was reading some of the posts on lake tanganyika cichlids and it got me to thinking about my past experiences with julidochromis Regani. since i am just getting back into being an aquarium keeper again after many years off I have been contemplating some ideas for a new set up. I had a 30 g long before that was set up with these lovely and interesting fish. it was interesting to watch the social and breeding behavior and to see several batches grow up together. I would like to hear of others experience with these small but delightful species.

    No experience, but I have to say I really love the Lake Tanganyika cichlids, I'm surprised it's not more popular to keep them. If I already had hard water, they'd be in my tanks for sure! Looking forward for pics and experiences with these fish as well :)

    I never kept J. regani, did keep marlieri and transcriptus though. If you're getting back into it I'd really recommend a 75 gallon tank, simply much wider variety of stocking options than a 30. The marlieri were kept in a 55 along with a couple other species. The fry gradually expanded their territory as they grew larger, with the next spawn staying closer to the nesting spot at first.
    I also kept paracyprichromis and multifasciatus in the tank (75 gallons) with the transcriptus. The multi's had a large pile of escargot shells, the julie's had a rockpile, and the paracyp's hung around some taller resin ornaments and flat pieces of slate placed vertically along the back. Synodontis petricola for cleanup crew.

    yup, I caught it years ago but I ended up staying away from the source and I got better. that will teach me to start hanging around the aquarium store again.

    It's hard to imagine anyone browsing a good LFS and not ending up with a tank of some size, even a smaller one.

    I kept a colony of julidochromis gombi. Wonderful little fish with a lot of personality.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Ack, the Gombe variant are the nastiest of the clan. My personal favorite for pattern, but meaner than any of the others.

    That tank setup was about 6-7 years ago in the basement of my previous house. Slipped on some ice on Christmas Eve and broke my left femur. 8-9 weeks later, when I was finally able to get back down to the basement to check my tanks (wife fed them while I was recovering), I discovered that I had forgotten to put the heater back in the tank after a cleaning the day before the accident. The catfish were fine, but the cichlids were long gone. I still have the hardscape pieces lurking around the basement, but the tank itself now houses a carpet python, and those same Synodontis are in my 125. No vids or even pics of the setup.
