A place to discuss the wonderful assemblage of lake Tanganyika cichlids from the tribe Ectodini, like Callochromis, Xenotilapia, Enantiopus, Cyathopharynx and Ophthalmotilapia!

Tank is way too small and the number of fish too little. They need at least a 6' tank. The male will most likely kill the females in such a small space before he kills himself crashing into the end of the tank. I would suggest either getting a bigger tank or getting rid of them. I have kept them in a 72 x 24 x 30" tank and would never keep them in anything smaller than a 6' 180g tank. Hopefully whoever sold them to you will take them back.900801 wrote:They are in a 4ft by 1.5 ft by 1.5ft. 1m 2f.
