    For my oceanic cube 30 gallons. I'm planning on putting the stock like this. 1 black calvus and 3 multifasciatus. Is this a good stocking? Or should I add more multis?

    I think the calvus needs a little bit of a bigger tank, but you could easily add more multis.

    The calvus will also eat the multis.

    This seems to be a very arguable topic. A couple people also said calvus make great tank mates with multis. I will also be getting my 3 multis and the one calvus at 1 inch in size. Calvus are also slow growers right?

    Okay now I am pretty stressed out with all the conflicting opinions I got. How about some julies instead of the calvus? Maybe 3? Im thinking ill add more multies like 4 or 5. So ill add the multis first and then maybe add a small calvus or 3 Julidochromis Ornatus or Transcriptus? Does that sound good?
