    I have recently added 2 electric yellow cichlids to my 15.5 gallon tank, I was just wondering if they would be able to stay in there for six months till I upgrade to a 50 Gallon tank? Any advice? They are both 2 inch males and are the only fish in the tank.

    As long as you keep it just the 2 of them, you could probably get away with it for a little while....6 months, IDK. You'll know when it's time to upgrade....

    Good morning, Welcome to Fish Lore Jladd

    I have deleted your duplicate post and moved this one from Aquarium Stocking Questions to the Electric Yellow Cichlid. It will be a lot less confusing to other members.

    Welcome to Fishlore! African Malawi do best in a minimum of a 55g tank. The sooner you can upgrade them, the better.

    Goodluck and please keep us posted.
