New 150g Tropheus Tank

Postby nwr2339 » Sat Feb 25, 2012 7:21 pm

So I have done a bit of research and talked to a few people that have around 50years experience between them and I think Im going to go with 20x T. Duboisi Maswa and 20x T. Moorii Lufubu. Providing I can find both. I might end up getting the T. Moorii Ilangi instead of Lufubu. What do you guys think?

Great choices. That's going to be a nice looking tank.

I would up the numbers to 25-30 each to pull a few males as they mature.
Too many fish to choose from, too few tanks!

I had a similar mix in a 200g? (84"x24"x24"). The dubs by far outbred the moorii and I think supressed the moorii's breeding.
I would keep them separatly if doing it again for maximum breeding. Show tank..... a fine mix. :thumb:

I used Kasanga (Red Rainbow) but you do your fav. 8)

All the best James
