Merry Christmas everyone. Seeing as I'm a Jew, what better to do than eat chinese food and plan a new tank on Christmas day?

Looking at the cookie cutter, I'm thinking maybe the following

trio of:
Xenotilapia Papilio Tembwe
or
Xenotilapia Flavipinis Lyamembe

Trio of (or 4?):
Paracyprichromis Nigripinnis

4 or 5:
Similis
or
Multi's

Any thoughts on set up? Obviously sand, but texas holy rock and shells?

Thanks all

If I were to attempt three, I would pick L. brevis as the third, as they tend to be pretty easy to manipulate into a small territory. I would also keep more Paracyp's.

I second Fogelhund's comment that, if you go with the P Nigripinnis you want more than 4. I haven't noticed them to be a tight-schooling species, but do seem to prefer a larger group.

The other thing I'd suggest is to consider going with just 2 species instead of 3. Gives each one a little bit more room. Paracyps and Xenos fit well together in that regard, as they don't really compete for the same space.
