Stocking 40 Gallon tank?

Postby Djv83 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 3:16 pm


My tank just cycled and I was just wondering if 12 Haplochromis sp. Ruby Green cichlid would be fine to stock it with?
If so what should the male to female ratio be?

Not sure on the length of the tank, but you could have a species group. You would want more females than males, hard to have too many females. You could have multiple males, at least for awhile, but in the long run you may go down to one male. I would start with multiple males, so you pick between males as far as color and temperament, and see how it goes.
