Adding new tropheus

Postby andrewe1985 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 4:09 am

Hi i had a group of tropheus but lost a few to bloat i am looking to add some back to get a big enough group is it better to get juvies or replace the adults with more adults.

I am thinking more the Juvie option as i would guess they would take less notice of them.

Cheers for your help.

Juveniles are typically accepted into a group, much better than adults... and are cheaper...

I would agree with Folulhund and try to source some little uns.
How many are in the group now? I have grown a group of Linangu back from 6 adults.

I have a another question
If i ended up having a group of 25 juvies in the tank. Would a group of Polli be ok with them as well as they are different species of Trophues and vastly different colours.
