Hi there!

I was wondering what people consider to be the ideal number of fish in an 85 gallon/320 litre tank? Lake Malawi, specifically Mbuna only. I already have two Labidochromis caeruleus, and will be getting another 2-3. After a range of colours.

TIA. :)

If you are doing mixed gender mbuna in a 48x18 I like 4 species with 1m:4f of each (depending on the species you choose).

Stick to fish that mature <= 6 inches.
