I have a 46 gallon bow front and I am considering shell dwellers. Does anyone know a good spot to find some basic info on them as I pretty much clueless.
Thanks in advance

I have done some reading and i think shell dwellers and other fish from lake Tanganyika would be perfect. I was wondering what your favorite species,combos,setups were?

... And so on.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

I can't tell you about shellies, all I've got are bricardis and am ordering a calvus for an online source. I can tell you that F1 is the offspring off a wild caught fish. F0 would be wild caught. F0 - wild caught. F1 offspring of wild caught. F2 would be offspring of F1.
Oh and I've heard the name Julie along with shells.
