My acei I got last and he was the smallest in the tank, compared to my other 5 africans, in about 2 months he was the second largest and he's getting bigger. You know a 10 gallon will start to stunt the acei's, they grow too quickly. And a 25 is still too small. Come on you all know better than putting those in a too small tank. You should skip the 25 altogether and go for a 50 that should be the smallest sized tank you should be looking at. I am not trying to be rude, but my 75 gallon looks small for them all. I couldn't imagine stuffing them into a 25, let alone for now a 10.
And when would you ever listen to people at Petsmart or Petco, they are all the same just like Wal-mart. Don't know a darn thing.... they are just selling.
I bought my 75 gallon for a little over 100. And if you get a job at the your LFS you should be able to afford a 50g.

thats 18 inches. Thats an extra un-filled 7 Gallons i could use.
The blue ones are Pseudotropheus Acei. I'm on an all Cichlid site and somebody identified it for me. 25 G's should be more than enough.
I could squeeze in maybe a 30 G. But im gonna be 16 in a few days and hopefully getting a job at my LFS. (its privately owned.) Hopefully that will make me some more money so i could eventually get a 45-50 G or so in the way future. They're only in a 10 G right now. I will be putting them in a 25-30 in 1-2 months. The people at petsmart and Petco said it was fine.
