  1. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    Ok so my mind has changed again, and i think that i am going to go for a male display tank. Mainly mbuna but i am going add a black calvus and gold comps. Against all the research that i have done if i go 2 males from the same species and having about 14 fish in total would there be enough distractions and hiding places to stop a massive blood bath. Potential list Lab nakali Patriki chiclid Tetrastigma Yellow belly albert Parlmut Black calvus Gold compress. Any thoughts??? Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    The tank is ready to go and i getting ready to splash some cash on the fish. Would a black clavus be ok to mix in with some peacocks,labs and acei Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    I know i cant wait for the tank to be ready. I must have changed my list 1000 times. But i am pretty sure i want male and female. Not really for breeding but more just about wanting a more natural feel in the environment if that makes sense. With the loaches would putting mature fish in the tank help with their resiliance? I was also thinking about some petricola catfish Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    I luv the ramble AoA (i hope you dont mind) And the kicking around the ideas, isnt that what pages like this are all.about. How would the loaches go with the cichlids? Aren't they a bit shy and i would see them?? Along with the colour movement at all levels is important to me i think? Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    My bad i ment to say that i would replace the msuli with the ngara. And then look for 4 red or orange ones. The afra would be the blues. Cheers Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    The one i was looking at was the msuli, i didnt realise there was black one. Thats great about the ngara, looks i can go for a another color mbana. So i would have 4 x 4 groups of colours maybe a red or orange Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
  8. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    Thanks Ageofaquariums, i have adapted this idea abit and i have created something like a pyramid using texas rock in the middle of the tank. I am going to use some anubias, java fern, amazon sword and villarius to help add some more hiding spots and line of sight distractions. With my fish lists i have kind of narrowed it down to the following. 4 electric yellow 1 male 3 female 4 Acei 1 male and 3 female 4 afra dog tooth I would also like to add some black coloured. Any thoughts and how that sounds and suggestions on the black colours? Cheers Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    Thanks all for your advice so far... I have been continuing my research, and i love that acei would be active towards the top of the tank, but i think my tank would be too narrow for them at 2ft wide , is that correct?? Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    Thanks humbug my initial plan was to get a south American for their personality, but i thought that the tank was to small for them. I will look into the west african dwarfs as well. One dwarf that i like is the Pseudotropheus Demasoni, and combine with the electric yellow. Do you think that might work. I am still cycling my tank so i have plenty of time to choose.

    Thanks for the replies how many rusties are we talking about? The peackocks are also tempting but i am not sure about a full male tank. Though the colours should he great. Do you think 10 males with no females would transform the tank into a prison yard fight to be top dog (fish)[emoji16] Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
  13. Hi all i am in the process of restarting my tank. My tank is a cube 60cmx60cmx60cm. I am trying to go for a colourfull fish tank with activity at the top middle and bottom. From what i can gather most african cichlids will be bottom to mid dwellers. Are there any that will help fill out the tank . Or any other species that will survive in my tank.
