I just got a 75g and am currently starting the nigrogen cycle in my tank. I plan on setting up a Tanganyikan Community Tank with it. I havent added the fish yet for the obvious reasons but here is what i plan on plan on having:

2 Eretmodus cyanostictus
3 Lamprologus ocellatus
12 Cyprichromis leptosoma
4 or 5 Frontosa

My question is, I dont know what to get for the open sand? I have looked at Xenotilapia ochrygenys but those are way out of my price range. Does anyone have any suggustions that would fit with my future tank? Oh and would the Fronts be compatable with all of the other fish?

Thanks

Yea that tank is too small for the fronts once they begin to mature. Maybe consider some other fish besides fronts. How about altolamps instead?

yeah i was thinking about that. once the fronts get to big they will just eat a lot of the smaller fish. in general how quickly do fronts grow? if i got a group of 4 when all of them are around a year or so how quickly would they grow to be over 4"?

If not fronts, does anyone else have other suggestions? I need something that lives in caves/rocks.
