In my experiences, Buccochromis are a very aggressive Hap.

I've got T. nigriventer, and they are in my top three favs. Also have some Champsochromis, which I also absolutely love. I'd go with those, personally. The Champs are largest and definately aggressive. I have a feeling, though, that if the Tyrants were larger....they'd be just as bad.

BTW, you've got a great problem (a huge empty tank and the sky's the limit on what to fill it with....if only I was having that problem right now :) ).

Your tank is big enough for any one breeding group and probably two of the less aggressive type. If you do a Buccochromis group then i would suggest many females for one male.

If breeding isn't important to you then you might want to consider an all male setup, that way you could have more variety and color with less aggression.

Good luck! :thumb:
