Metriaclima dolphin I assume? This is a big fish, maturing at 7" so I'm not sure how well they will do in a 55G.

For a 55G three species is plenty so I'd add more of the same species until I had 1m:4f of each.

They almost always tell you it will be fine at the LFS. Don't believe them, as a general rule. Do your research yourself.

Not saying that there isn't a lfs that know what they are talking about, but where I live they suck. The people that chime in on this site are oozing with real knowledge. I would trust what they would say before a lfs :thumb:

So you guys are saying you don't believe everything the fish salesman tells you?

I'm personally so thankful for this forum. Wish I had found it earlier.
