New 15 Gallon long mixed african tank.
I'm starting a 15 gallon long mixed african tank i want to stock it with around 22 inches of fish and use cichlids that are under 3-4 inches i'm also looking for a small catfish for this tank the cuckoo catfish is just too big the tank is going to have many many rocks knooks and crannies along with some african snail shells. Any species that you can suggest would be great i'm deffinately going to have some yellow cichlids i was thinking 3 and 3 like 2 female and 1 male yellow and the same of another species.
You know your cichlids perhaps i'll be contacting you regarding them . I would like to get some bottom/cavr dwellers incorporated into my community FW tank.For now i'm tapped out i'm having a go at chocolate gouramis and i've ordered new tetras and danios well quite a few oddies as well.
Keep in mind leleupi males are very aggressive so a 15 gallon with a pair or trio of leleupi might be ok. If you do 2 trios , lets say a trio of leleupi and a trio of... maybe transcriptus or regani, you will surely have problems with aggression. You would have to stick with other Lake Tanganyikan cichlids and there is not enough room for that many fish. Ive had a leleupi in a 14gallon and he used every bit of it. For the fish's sake I would either get a bigger tank or get less fish because they will surely kill each other. And these fish arent usually very cheap.

Spotted Raphael Catfish, 1 Bumble Bee Catfish, 2 Golden
Chinese Algae Eater
