Hi Everyone,

I am setting up a tank for tangyikan cichlids that is a 45 gal., 36x12x24. I want Altolamprologus compressiceps 'Sumbu dwarf for the shellies and then some sort of open water cichlid for the upper part of the tank.

Anyone have any recommendations for them? What kind and how many. How may species could be mixed in this tank?

Thanks.

I'd do 2 species with paracyps as the fish for the upper part of the tank...about six individuals.

There are not many Tang cichlids for upper part of the tank, and most require 48" or longer.

I have heard that paracyps are hard to get established with big percentages of them dying when first gotten. Anyone else have this problem?
