Predator Tank Stocking Ideas

548 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  climacoolair
I am converting my 300 gallon tank into a Malawi predators tank.

I have some ideas but am interested in other suggestions.

I have a colony of Venustus and acces to spare male Polystigma and Livingstoni.
I am looking at a group of Tyrranichromis Macrostoma and Champsochromis spilorhynchus.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Going all Male?

What are the dimensions of this aquarium?
Possibly all male.

Dimensions are 7 foot x3 footx2 foot LxWxH

If i do putin females fry will be fresh food for the other members of the tank.

We added girls to our mixed Hap tank. :eek:

Wasn't ready for the all out war , things have settled a bit now after a year or so.
Adding females will add breeding aggression, which will probably make your tank a LOT more explosive than it would be if it were just all-male.

Either way, I want photos when this tank goes up!
Thanks guys & gals

Purchased 6 x juvenile Tyrranichromis Macrostoma and 6 x juvenile Champsochromis spilorhynchus.

Added 2 x Polystigma and 2 x Livingstoni.

Have a breeding colony of Saulosi for fresh food and am looking at purchasing some Dimidiochromis compressiceps/Dimidiochromis strigatus.

Will add pics when i get time to take some.
