    I am very interested in Cichlids and i would like to do a Lake Tanganika fish tank.

    One of the fish i believe i will have in there are Julies.
    Im still trying to decide between species that would look good to me any ideas would be good
    If you have pics of the fish would you mind also posting a picture of them thx

    K that looks good, i saw the other setup you had where you got the breeding pair of some cichlid and 13 of there fry as well as the julies in the 55 gallon tank.
    Thanks for the pics, of the tank i still havent decided upon a layout for my tank.
    Anyone else?

    hi there
    Malawi's are a very nice cichlid.
    I'll be getting mine soon.
    Have you considered Peacocks, Yellow Labs, blue colbalts they are not too aggressive. Beautiful colours.
    But you can get more aggressive cichlids like kenyi, johanni's.
    It all really depends on the size of tank you have.
    200L min for malawi.
    Heres a website  
    Hope it has helped you.
