    Default Tanganyika Cichlids (new to me)


    0 Not allowed!
    Okay, so I am planning on running a beautiful Tanganyika Cichlid tank, tank is a 48 gallon bow front. Also will be running a 25 gallon freshwater sump with it.

    Planning on beautiful river rock for caves and black and white cichlid mix to maintain the Ph level. Also will be running 2 coralife power heads for significant water movement to keep everyone healthy and happy. This is the exact replica that my saltwater tank is, they are identical.

    My question is I would like to start with Fairy Cichlids, although I am wondering what else I could put in there to make it as stunning as my saltwater.

    Any suggestions?

    Any of the Brichardi complex species will take over the whole tank (unless it's a very large one) as they spawn and the fry grow larger. Other species will either be killed outright or stressed to death over time.
    What are the dimensions of the tank?

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    It's not overly large, its a 48 US gallon, it's dimensions are 3ftx18 inches at the center, 12 inches at the side since it's a bow front and 28 inches in height, since you said that I am reconsidering. Any suggestions?

    A group of Neolamprologus Pulcher "Daffodil" would look stunning once they've settled in. Species only though. Their family breeding units are amazing.

    Or you could look at a good group of Tropheus (again, species only, unless you add a few goby-types, as they require specialist vegetable diets).

    Or a small community. Shell dwellers like Lamprologus Ocellatus "Gold", julidochromis, maybe a leleupi or two?

    I'd be tempted to set up a large sandy bottom tank for Enantiopus (not sure that's spelt right) species. Really cool behaviour. But rare.

    That actually sounds really nice firefly, the substrate that I am going to be adding is Eco-Complete Cichlid Zack Black, I also have a black painted background and beautiful white river rock if I can find it :). I will posted a pic when it is completed. Thanks for the help
