I am thinking of getting 2 groups of tropheus. 20 duboisi and 20 Moorii Chipimbi Red. I have a 175 bowfront tank. Is there room for both grooups?

Thanks for the help. :thumb:

I have 30 Tropheus Kaiser 2 (Kiriza) in my 180 and I know there is room for a total of 40 or 50 fish in there - maybe even 55.
So yes - you have room for 40 fish.
Should you keep two varieties?
I don't know that one.
I am considering adding a second group but cannot decide.
Pros would be nice color contrast and busier tank.
Cons might be interbreeding or one group not breeding much.

Yes, you definitely have room for the two groups.

T. dubiosi will do fine with Chipimbi with no worries of cross breeding.

Good luck and enjoy
