    Hi All,

    Would like to know how many different species of dwarf cichlids would be able to go into a 100L tank? They would be the only things in the tank.

    It depends on the cichlid. What species are you interested in?

    I am interested in the Apistogramma Trifasciata and the Apistogramma Cacatuoides.
    I also like the German Blue and Gold rams if that helps

    You could have 2 females and 1 male with the Apistos. But just one species.

    And with the rams, I believe you can keep in pairs. Not positive about those. I've never kept them. But I don't think you should not keep them with the Apistos in that size of tank.

    I would only do one species of dwarf cichlid in anything under 55 gallons. In a 55 gallon or more I'd say you could do multiple.
