Hello,

I recently got offered a good deal on a tank and couldn't say no.

The tanks size is 124cm x 40cm x 52cm high.

I orinally was thinking of doing lake Malawi, mainly yellow labs, however having kept these fish in the past I thought perhaps I'd try something else.

I've always wanted to give tangs a try, particular Tropheus Ikola / Bemba / duboisi or similar.

I'd like to know if you think the tank is big enough for these fish and if so what would the ideal sticking levels be.

Would one species be best in a tank this size?

Ideal for tropheus is a species tank tht is 48" x 18" or larger.

This tank is 48" x 16" so if you use it for tropheus, I would do one species only.
