Would this work?

Recommended Posts

I was trying to think of some cool stocking ideas for my 40g breeder and I came across a video of a lake Tanganyika community tank and it look’s awesome so I was wondering would this work for stocking without any problems? 4 julidochromis transcriptus, 4 neolamprologus leleupi, 4 neolamprologus brichardi and 6 Neolamprologus brevis.

would this work? Would it not? Would you change the numbers? Let me know your thoughts/experiences with lake Tanganyika cichlids and stocking a community.

Lovely species! I highly caution against mixing species of shell-dwellers. They really do best in a species-only set up.

I divide my 40-breeder with a matten sponge divider down the middle. You could do two species, one on one side, one on the other.
