Number of fish in my tank?

Postby Tonyk2675 » Fri Mar 02, 2018 2:05 pm

How many mature African cichlids should I have in my 125 gallon tank. I have 13 and 2 plecos. Most of the Cichlids Are around 5 in

Looks like you are going all male with no look-alikes and one of each species. I like 18 individuals in a 72" tank for all male.

Why are the fish lurking under the surface?

Partially because they were probably waiting for me to give them some food and there is also a big structure that goes up the side of the tank in the corner, it's like a root ball. They like to be around it. It's just outside of the picture frame
