X caudafasciata with?

Post by JCBlom » Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:41 am

I have 6 (if they are sext correctly 2/4_ Xenotilapia caudafasciata.
They will go in a 120x50x50cm tank. Only it are shey fish so I want to keep a pair ore litle groep of something with them.

What do you recommend? I want fish that don`t make a big terretory for them self. Some people here are recommending me a pair of X flavipinnis or even a pair of X sima.
The sima are big but they are telling me that they are perfect because they are very calm. Is that possible? Because I love the sima`s but I dont know if it is wise in this aquarium size.
