I currently have a 55 gallon Tanganyika Tank with the following stock:


1 julidochromis transcriptus

1 neolamprologus lelepui

1 Neolamprologus cylindricus

1 neolamprologus brichardi

1 neolamprologus tretocephalus

1 altolamprolgus calvus

1 altolamprologus compreccicups

4 cyprichomis (1 male 3 female)

1 raphael catfish

1 clown plecostomus



This has been the set-up for the past 6 months with no issues so far but I wanted to reach out for feedback from those who have been in the hobby for longer than myself. The tank is heavy with rock and hiding places and the fish range from 2 inches to 3 1/2 inches.

As they grow do you see any issues with my current set-up? Is it alright to keep the clown pleco and the raphael cat with a Tanganyika setup? Any other ideas for algae eaters?

Any ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated.
