How many Tropheus for 5 foot 125Gl

Postby burunduk » Thu Aug 01, 2019 4:17 pm

Another question, about Tropheus this time around. How many should I put in the 60" 125 gallon? They will be the main fish in the tank with maybe a pair or trio of calvus/comp. I only want one variant. I've kept Tanganyikans for at least 20 years, but never Tropheus since they always seemed like a pain with bloat and all that. I am thinking of trying them, maybe.... Thanks

I had two groups in each of my 5' 120g's. One group had around 32 and the other around 36.
I would lean towards 24 as a nice sized group without having to do massive water changes.

Thanks noddy. I was thinking 20, so 24 would work too.
