I'm setting up a 55 Gallon tomorrow and wanting to keep one of these Neolamprologus tretocephalus in it and have the tank center around it. I am setting up two 125's here in the near future (i'm building the stands in the DIY thread now). Do you really know of any tanks mates that will go with the tret in a 55? I'm guessing something that will be a little aggressive, but i've read that these guys aren't as aggressive if one is kept in a tank and not a pair. Something that would be able to survive with a ton of rock work inside it.

I was wanting to keep C. Moorii in one of my 125's, but I was afraid that the 55 would not be enough for them. I didn't know how fast they grow compared to other larger cichlids.

THoughts?

I have 1 tret in a 120 with 8 other assorted tangs. The tret WAS the king until I got an O.ventralis. Now he rules. Every one gets along great though. They chase each other around,and there is a definate pecking order,but no one has killed anyone ...yet...its been about 8 months.
