Hi. I've got a 100cm by 40cm by 40cm and am thinking of having a tanganyikan community setup.

I'm thinking of having a pair of neolamprologus caudopunctatus
A pair of Telematochromis temporalis

and 5 ocellatus shell dwellers in the middle.

+ synodontis petricola

Does this sound ok? Could I get single species of any fish as well. Has anyone experience with Telmatochromis temporals?

Any advice would be gladly appreciated. :)

Thanks for replying. What would you recommend in this size tank?

I'm quite interested in the Telematachromis Temporals and just want to find out what his behaviour is like.
Are these temporalis, or temporalis shell?

It doesn't matter too much, but there aren't many fish that you could keep with them in a 39" tank. Certainly not the species you've chosen. Maybe you could try some Neolamprologus brichardi or pulcher.

How are your Temporalis doing?

I have a pair (They stay together) in a 125G with a pair of Julidochromis Ornatus and for the most part they leave each other alone. When there is any chasing going on it is the temporalis chasing the Ornatus.

I have only had the Temporalis for a couple of months but from what I understand is that they can be aggressive and hold their own.
