Best Tankmates for Tropheus

Post by cupfishhead » Fri Feb 20, 2009 7:53 pm

I have 10 Tropheus duboisi and 6 tropheus Bemba orange flame in a 72gal bow. I am looking for some tankmates, would like to keep it filled with other Tangs but any other suggestions would be great.
Native Fishes Rule!!! Go sample some streams near you!!!
Of course Cichlids Rule Too!!!

You could also try Simochromis "babaulti" or "diagrammis". I have babaulti with my colony of T.moori "musanga". They intermix well, and are not overly aggressive, although they hold their own when it comes to being harrassed. Klaus Steinhause wrote an excellent article this month in ACA buntbarshe bulletin about keeping them all together in a Troph species tank.

Markw,

Would you mind sharing where you got the Simochromis "babaulti" from.

THanks.
