Mixed Lake Tanks
Posted 05 June 2004 - 05:52 PM
What would you put in a 55g mixed lake omnivore tank?

It kind of depends what you want. I would do an all male show tank with 1 or 2 Peacocks and maybe a Copadichromis azureus or borleyi from Malawi, a species 44 from Victoria, Maybe an Altolamprologus compressiceps or calvus and a leleupi or one of the other lamprologines and a Synodontis from Tanganyika. I think this would make a beautiful and interesting tank.
Just my thoughts though

What I do is I buy already colored-up males(adults, not hormoned) because once they color up only rarely will they loose their color.

I was thinking about the following fish:
Chalinochromis brichardi masked
Copadichromis sp. mlotto midnight
Some sort of peacock(s)
3 Synodontis petricola
Maybe some Cyprichromis leptosoma
And my three Yellow Labs...which I think are all males...but one is questionable.
Or some sort of combination of those fish. Haven't really figured it out yet. I also want to try to sneak a Cynotilapia afra in there, I heard they are more of a omnivore than other mbuna and I like the Blue & Blue one Armke's has.

This one has a species list and brief descriptions of the species in Lake Victoria including all the cichlids. Nothing on how to keep them.
and this looks like some good info as well...

I don't see any reason why people have problems getting Victorians to color up...I have had more of an issue with my Ps Polit than my XMas Fulu...
