I have been given a tropheus and currantly have it in my 5 foot tank with 5 Acei, 5 yellow Labs, 4 Peacocks, 2 C moori, 1 Venustus and 2 red empresses. I feed them Hikari Cichkid Excel , Cichlid Gold and Algae Wafers.
I would like to keep this fish but am i better off selling him off at my lfs.

I had one for a little while and those guys stay busy! Very fun to watch, but IME very agressive. I have been considering another one but havent decided yet.

I moved him to a friends tank while i went on vacation (thats how agressive he was!) and he died in that tank..

Thanks BrianNFlint
What type of fish was the tropheus put in with and was it fed the correct food?

Never had any Tropheus--but would like to comment on how nice and natural looking your tank is set-up. Well-Done. :thumb:

I had him in with Mbuna - Yellow Labs, Zebras, Demasoni, etc. I was feeding NLS.

He did well in my tank but my friends tank was way over crowded. It was a 55 gal with about 30-35 adult Mbuna and some haps.. I would think water condition was the problem. At the time I was more concerned with comming home to 1 fish than losing 1 fish.

I really enjoyed him while I had him but he was VERY agressive. I would not attempt to put 2 in one tank. If you want more I would suggest 10+
