Stocking ideas for 55 gallon Tang tank
« on: January 16, 2017, 08:53:22 PM »
Hello everyone.
I will soon be getting a new 55 gallon tank, and will be looking at stocking it with Tanganyika cichlids. I have never had these type of fish before, and was wondering what  fish people would suggest for a Tanganyika community tank.

Thanks in advance.

I would go these guys cyprichromis leptosoma with maybe some shell dwellers to use the bottoms like multies or black occies or Yu could go julidichromis marlieri they're cool cave dwellers

I can't see a Tang tank without some Neolamprologus Brichardi.
