220 gallon dream hap fish list

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!

What are the dimensions of the 220?

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.
