Spare tank.. what to put in it

Recommended Posts

So I currently have a 'spare' 3 footer, was thinking of keeping/breeding something interesting.

Obviously a small-med cichlid in that sized tank, say a trio or small colony.

I'm leaning towards a Tanganiyikan, I'd like some C. pleurospilus but they don't seem to be avail at the moment.

Any suggestions? Something interesting that won't break the bank but isn't too common.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I have a male of each of the dewindte and hippo point in my display tank, nice fish.

Intangcity I've kept pleuros before, I don't think they get any bigger than 10cm either.

I should have some ready to go in the near future, PM me if interested :)

If you want something interesting get some Neo. Multies. I have kept them many times over the years. Watch them move gavel and arrange their shells is so amazing. They don't eat their fry. Once they settle they will breed regularly and you can watch the fry grow.

then I sold them off and keeped a pair and started all over again
