I'm using an Aqua clear HOB filter for 10-30 gallons. I have a 29 gallon. Do you think this is enough to house 14 Demasoni? The demasoni are still in FRY form. I was thinking of adding another Aqua Clear 10-30gallon HOB or just getting one AquaClear 20-50Gal HOB.

I would guess that the one you have on there now will not be enough. I am setting up a similar 30 gallon demasoni tank. I have 1 AC 70 and 1 older AC 50? I am not sure that I have enough either.

Is a 29 gallon tank really large enough to house a demasoni colony? I have a 29 gallon that I use for a grow out tank... but I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it once my 60 gallon was stocked the way I want it. I had once looked into demasoni as a possibility but was discouraged because of the tank being too small.

I would think the smallest workable tank for demasoni is a 38g, anything lower then that would be great for some SA dwarfs.

Quite a few posts on here with demasoni breeding groups begin used in a 29g and it working very well... just search demasoni or 29g under the lake malawi subfolder and start perusing.

I had my demasoni in a 55gal. I had about 25 of them in a species only tank. I sold all the adults/juvis

I just moved and I kept the fry. I downsized to a 29 gal. I'm currently housing 21 demasoni fry.

I will eventually sell about 10 of them when they get a little bigger.

I will post pics of my setup.
