Shell Dwellers

    Hey guys,

    I was thinking, are any shell dwellers(tanganyika cichlids) suitable for a 10 gallon?

    Multi's do just fine in 10's.

    I know Carol and I both have housed them that way.

    Ohh, that's good.

    Also are escargot shells good? And how many multis would you suggest.
  5. Dino Fishlore VIP Member

    Escargot shells work just fine. I would suggest starting with a minimum of 4-5 fish, as they are hard to sex when young.

    Oh ok thanks!

    Sorry for asking so many questions.

    IS the NLS Grow formula good?
    What plants can be kept with them?
  7. Dino Fishlore VIP Member

    I have not used NLS, so I cannot answer that one.
    Generally, only floating plants do well, as they tend to bury or uproot, anything that is in the substrate.

    Questions are never a problem.

    DIno, what do you feed your multis?

    99% of my foods come from Ken's Fish.
