how many fish?

Postby Mikey13 » Mon Apr 21, 2008 12:36 am

I'm sure you good people have been asked this a million times before, a 36x12x18/19 tank, how many cichlids could one hypothetically keep? The species of most interest are the ever-popular yellow lab, and if at all possible, some ruby-green. These 2 at least for starters. This is assuming that those 2 species are even compatible....

I have a community tank right now, and am thinking of how things might shape up in the future if i went to cichlids alone(have Kribs and Rams right now).

Thanks for any input. Say what you think.

P.S. I love color, hence the ruby-green.

Yellow labs would be fine in that sized tank.

What are the "ruby-greens"???

110G - Perspicax Red Top Ndumbi, Demasoni, Yellow labs, Metriaclima Callainos
