Depends on the size of your tank and the number of Troph's you have. Tropheus like having rocky piles to claim as territory but you don't want to give them too many territories or else they will be constant territorial battles. I like using really large rocks rather than using a bunch of smaller rocks and stacking them. Seems more natural looking. Also, give them some serious current too as this helps curb their aggression since they fight the current rather than each other. Plus it mimcs their natural environment since they live on the shoreline.
