i Currently have a 55 gallon tanganyika tank set up with one Altolamprologus Compressiceps, 2 orange lelupui, and one Neolamprologus tretocephalus. i was wondering if it would be ok to add 3 Cyprochromis Leptosoma to the tank to give it some upper tank movement. tell me wat u think about the current fish i have now. the tank is well set up with pleanty of caves.... i am also planning to add more fish in the future.

If you're going to do Cyps, I would stay away from the Jumbo varieties and go with 6+, preferrably 10+. You have the room and they'll do much better with a proper school. They should go great with what you have now.

I agree with snatched. Your tank is big enough for 6-8, and you'll find they're much happier if they can school ... might even get them to breed. Other than that, there aren't any compatability issues. I'm actually thinking of setting up my new 55 gal with a similar combination of Tanganyikans. Good luck. :)
