Tank for Lamprologus Ocellatus Gold

Postby bmrigs » Sat Mar 04, 2017 5:40 pm

Hello all. Been a lurker for awhile now on here and finally registered. I have been in fish keeping for most of my life and would like to house the Ocellatus gold in a 20 gallon cube that I have already. Dimensions are 20"x20"x12" I will be running 2 Aqua Clear 70's that I have already. The question is how many of these should I purchase if I hope to breed them? Also what other fish can go with them peacefully that may by mid to high level areas of the tank. Keep in mind this tank is only 12" high. Should I just get some dither fish like zebras? You advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

I would pass on the dithers. I would get six young fish, and let them sort it out from there.

Thank you for your response. I was thinking along 6-8 of the Ocellatus. I was looking at the blue eyed forktail rainbow fish for the top swimmers. They also being small. Anybody else want to chime in?
