    My first experience ever with these fish, does this look like a good habitat? Substrate is sand, and I used Escargot shells. Filtration is a Aquaclear 20 and im running a heater, forget the specs but i've used it fine in a 10g before. Now I just need to track down some fish lol.

    wow, thats a shelly condo paradise! The fish won't be able to pick a shell with so much to choose from.

    I've no personal experience with shellies, but that looks fine to me, except they may like a bit of open sand to play in...

    Looks good, lots of shells. Be prepared many shell dwellers will move a lot of sand around, so some of the unused shells may end up buried. It's fun seeing what they do to the tank. I normally just flatten the sand out and put shells everywhere and let them go at it.

    Lack of planning on your part doesn't justify an emergency on my part.

    Thanks guys! There is some rock in there but its hard to see, the water was still pretty cloudy. I fully expect them to re-scape everything, thats one of the behaviors im really looking forward to!

    Right now im leaning towards Lamprologus Ocellatus, I like their coloring and behavior. I already tried the LFS and his suppliers dont have any shell dwellers, so it looks like im gonna be ordering online no matter what I pick.

    I would add some taller rocks with a tan tone...Ohko stone would be awesome. I hope the neons are not a permant fixture in the tank, the shells and sand will not create water conditions to their liking. Overall the tank is nice, perfect home for some shellies
