Small tank

Postby Doronxl7 » Tue May 21, 2019 2:41 pm

Hey there,
It is possible to make lake malawi tank at 26 gallon?
small tank but the main problem I can think of is the measurements....
Width: 40cm (15.75")
Height: 50cm (19.69")
Depth: 50cm (19.69")

I haven't made the tank and can change the height yet not the width \ depth.
Thought about mixing some electric yellow lab with maybe demasoni....

I would not put 1 Mbuna in a tank that size. A tank that size would be kind of like a family of 4 or 5 in a studio apartment, way over crowded. The smallest tank I would put Labs in would be a 40 gallon and then no other species. Definitely no Demasoni.
