Help with Tropheus Bemba Tank!

Postby papayaverde » Mon Mar 01, 2021 8:32 pm

Please help. I have a custom made tank I bought which is 100 gallons. The store said it would be fine for 24 tropheus bemba because they didn’t get that big. After reading this forum I have doubts about my tank. Even though it is 100 gallons it is a what they call a show tank and it has weird dimensions, it is 36 inches long by 32 inches high by 20 inches deep. Will my tropheus bemba be alright in this tank??

I would want a tank that was 48" by 18" or larger for tropheus. Gallons are less important than length.

Agree with this, particularly the "OR Larger" part. Your tank would make a fantastic tank for Angels, or Discus though. Particularly some altum angels.
