Ok, I finally bought my new house and have just about everything unpacked. I've got my pond fish in a 20 gal until I can install the new pond later this week. My wife has warmed up to having a fish tank around now and even tried (but was denied) having me keep the goldfish (feeders) in the house. I have a 55 also but only the tank & the equipment for that one is not in the budget for now. I want to get some shellies but what other options would there be for me? Victorian? Tanganyikans? The malawians I like are to big for this tank till I get the 55 up. Are there any good sources in eastern PA other then that fish place in lancaster. My local mom & pop has closed up so I cant special order anymore. Any members here local that have extra brood stock? Goldfish are ok when Im sitting in the yard having a bbq but seriously. I need some real fish. FOr shellies Im interested in either Neolamprologus occellatus gold or Brevis.

Either of those shellies in a 20 gallon should be fine. I don't think you'll regret going with a shell-dweller tank. I've got a 29 gallon in the works that will be Multifasciatus and a single pair of a smallish rockdweller. Some people seem to like dwarf rainbowfish as dithers to fill the upper water in a shellie tank. Do you have a "tall" 20 or a "long" 20? You'd probably be able to add a second species if it were a 20 long.

There is a place in upper darby,world wide aquarium,which is really good and a place in norristown,capt nemos,that is easily accesable from the turnpike.There is one in delaware also but that may be too long a ride for you.
