The more I've researched lake tanganyika the more I'm leaning towards them. I have a 40 long with mbuna that I'm thinking of trading in for some more tangs.
I'd definetly move my 20 long stocking over to the tank.
3 gold occies
5 dwarf petricola
1 xeno species(not sure which I got it for free)
I'm growing out 3 blue orchid cyps in my multie tank as well.

Thinking of upping the school of orchids
and doing like a pair of calvus or comps

Would I be pretty well stocked in there or could I add anything else?

I would choose one of the bottom dwellers...occies or petricola or xenos.

I'd skip the cyps and paracyps...the 40 longs are short tanks.

Maybe a pair of calvus or comps.

I have cyps in a 90 gallon and don't think they'd work in anything much smaller than that. The males can get a little nasty at times (amongst their own type).
