hi,
been on this forum for a few years but havnt posted for a long time,

i have kept lots of different malawis and most other types of fish so i kind of know the chemistry and care needed.

im wanting a 2x2 cubed tank which i think is roughly 220ltrs,but i was wondering stocking levels mixing species,looking for a good colourfull busy tank without too much aggression.

any ideas.

Don't get Tropheus if you want a low aggression tank Liam :wink:

Tropheus will not work in a 2*32*2. They can be very aggressive and need big groups in large tanks. In my 2 * 50g tropheus tanks i have a group of 16 dubosi and 16 ilangi. If you do try it stick to tank bred dubodi but i dont think you have much chance of success.

I live in Eastbourne - the sunniest place in Britain. That isn't really saying much...
