220 gallon dream hap fish list

Postby jcover » Sun Jun 30, 2019 8:53 pm

Hey Folks,

I was wondering what you would do if you had a 220 gallon aquarium and had to fill it with Haps. Throw some ideas out there for mixed species tanks, all male tanks, breeding group, etc.

Ready, set, go!

6' x 24" x 29" , so more like a 216 gallon tank.

Just like the 72" tank I have. Mixed gender haps and peacocks with borleyi, maleri and astatotilpaia.

I have also done all-male haps and peacocks, mixed gender mbuna and Tanganyikan community.

I decided to do the Tangs in a tank I could observe more closely. And the mixed genders seem more carefree and relaxing.

What is your m/f ratio and total stocking levels with your tank?

I tried for 3m:9f of each. Then adjust as necessary for individual fish personalities.
