Hello everyone!!! :)

Just finished cycling my 55g tank and want to set up a tanganyika community.

Tank size 48 1/4 x 12 3/4 x 21

Any advice would be great. I want to base the tank around either black or white calvus

Calvus, shellies and cyprochromis are a classic combo.

Shellies I do want. I have the shells just need to clean them. I was thinking of placing them in the open sand area and close to small rock pile

I would not add them but you could swap them for the calvus or shellies.

Ok thx. If I did my homework right the idea would be 5 or 6 of each except for the cyps bc they are school fish. And as the calvus and shellies or julies grow and pair off remove or rehome the extras?

Shellies like multifasciatus colonize, so buy 6 and they will multiply. Twelve cyps. Six calvus and remove extras when a pair forms. Compliments on the studies.
