    In a tall tank with rockwork and caves to the top, which species is likely to climb the highest? Will a calvus us a cave 2 feet off of the substrate, or are they bottom dwellers? Will Julies climb that high? I'm not talking about hanging out in the water column, but about occupying empty caves I've created.
    Thanks for any and all observations!

    Calvus and compressiceps both prefer to be near the bottom from what I remember. I do know they both tend to be very shy. Im not sure on Julie's. Which species? http://julidochromis.com/species/

    It would have to be a dwarf I think based on tank size. A local guy has Julidochromis marlieri, but they're big as adults, right? He might have some ornatus, but I prefer the patchy look of the trans and marlieri more.

    You don't want dwarf with either calvus or comp. They are both specialized predators.

    If you want something to fill out the upper level of a tang tank, look at cyprochromis species.

    Not looking for free swimming occupants, but a species that will use high rock work

    So far as I know, the least dominant fish will be pushed up highest, but I don't know that any of the rock dwelling species prefer to be far from the bottom.
