90 gallon tank stocking

Postby Cichlid boy » Sun Feb 26, 2017 8:35 pm

I just upgraded from a 90g to a 125g. I want to stock the 90g now with Tanganikan cichlids. I have a breeding pair of j. transcriptus, 1m 2f n. multifaciatus, and 4 j. ornatus ~2". The tank is 60" by 18" by 19" (LxWxH). I was thinking of decorating it like this ROCK-SAND-SHELL-SAND-ROCK all about 12" sections.

I also was hoping for a more open water species looking for your opinions for a species.


let me know what you opinions are for all this.

thanks

I wouldn't keep two Julidochromis species together, more likely to get hybridization, and aggression between the two.

You could easily swap out one of the Julidochromis species for a Lamp. caudopunctatus, and Altolamprologus, Telmatochromis vittatus/bifrenatus/brichardi.

For open water, you could do Cyprichromis.

Paracyps aren't really open water. The males in particular are rock dwelling cave fish, though the females will be a bit more prone to being in the open water. If you want an open water fish, Cyprichromis is your fish.
