Does anyone have any suggestions for tankmates for Calvus? Was doing a group of 5-6 calvus in a 55 tall and wanted to add more fish. All suggestions welcome. Thanks

A shell dweller would be good in that tank (take your pick), and I'd also try to get some Paracyprichromis. Other options would be a second rock-dweller such as Julidochromis or beuscheri...

Calvus are generally good neighbors, so you've got quite a few options. :thumb:

+1 for the Julidochromis. My J. marlieri and Calvus get along fine, The Occies defend their shell to either that "intrudes" but that is about it...

I have 3 black Calvus, 6 J. Regani, 6 Cyp Blue Flash , and 2 Bristlenose Plecos in my 55. I just added all but the Calvus this past weekend, and everything is fine. Going to wait for the Regani to pair off and then put the others in another tank.
