Another question, about Tropheus this time around. How many should I put in the 60" 125 gallon? They will be the main fish in the tank with maybe a pair or trio of calvus/comp. I only want one variant. I've kept Tanganyikans for at least 20 years, but never Tropheus since they always seemed like a pain with bloat and all that. I am thinking of trying them, maybe.... Thanks

I had two groups in each of my 5' 120g's. One group had around 32 and the other around 36.
I would lean towards 24 as a nice sized group without having to do massive water changes.
