It has been 7 years since I last had an African tank. I used to get most of my fish from a guy that lived close by but he has since closed shop. Where do you recommend for a good place to order fish at in the states? Also, I will be housing them in a standard 125 gallon tank, so how many can I get away with in an all male tank? Thanks in advance!

For retailer feedback you can look at the Retailer Reviews or PM a Member or a Mod for a recommendation.

I like 18 individuals in a 72" tank if you choose fish that mature <= six inches.

Thanks I will look at that. What would be a nice colorful stock list to think about? I have kids and they like the colors. I have always been partial to the Aulonocara looking fish. I will look at the retailer page and most likely have more questions. Thanks DJ
