Hi...My name is Jason. I Got my first tank recently. I really like the Cichlid species, so I'm gonna try it out. My tank is only small (10 gallon) but a 20 will be on the way in a few months, so I will be upgrading.

Anyways, I only have the one fish in there now, a young white spotted Cichlid (Tropheus duboisi) He's been in there for 2 days now and seems to be doing fine. But I want to get as much information as possible on these fish.

What other kinds of fish can i put in there with him?
How many fish could I put in this tank?
Do I need to leave the light on all the time?
How often/how much should I feed him?
ANYTHING else you guys can tell me will be greatly appriciated!!

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Whats up Jason, and welcome to the forum. check out this article

In you r current setup:
1. none
2. none
3. few hours a day, too much light can cause algae growth.
4. feed them as much as they can consume in 30 seconds.
5. You will need a larger tank if you want to keep the tropheus. If you want to keep the 10g going for now maybe you should look into a single shell dweller from lake Tanganyika

good luck
