i am mostly a tang lake lover. a 95 would make a great community tang tank (easier to community tang than community malawi). Calvus are some of my favorites (have three) along with shellies (have 4 golds) and can work in a 95 with quite a few others. From what I now frontosa work best as a species tank and definatly dont go with the calvus. also if you do what i have seperate rock pile on one side and shell pile on other.

also check your tap water ie ph, hardness... (LFS will do this for you) I say this because if you want less complications and deaths match the fish to the water in your tap not the tap water to the fish you get... i live in michigan extremly hard water, decently high ph tape at 7.6 ish so african chiclids are an easy match. if it was the opposite like soft and 6.2ish the discuss or rams (S and N American Cichlids) would be great... hope this helps good luck!

Nice fish and tank, Gazza.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
