    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.

    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?

    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.
