55g Cichlid Tank Project

There is a possibility of quarantining them when the next need arises however, my wife has been getting on me to get rid of the two empty tanks. Hence, the reason they are empty in the first place. However, due to me traveling, I am just going to wait and maybe I will get lucky and have the Kenyi's breed so I won't need to buy more.

As an update for this tank. I now have 1 BN Plec, the High Fin Syndontis, 1 Oto, and 5 Kenyi Cichlids. The only other stocking that I am thinking about is maybe another plec, probably albino. I will post the new pictures soon. The problem that I was having seems to have been fixed. I added 3 more female Kenyi's today as the tank has seen stability in the last week and a half. I added two air stones and removed a suspect rock from the tank. The combination of both seems to have stabilized the tank.

I had kribs once but they were a nightmare. Had a go at everything and ended up dominating the whole tank. Had to give them to the LFS in the end :(

Personally, I would get another few female kenyi - ideally you want 2-3 females for every male. 3 is better with kenyi's because they are nasty buggers when they mature. :)

Your oto may not last long in there, either. BNs are great in a mbuna tank though! :)

Cool beans! I love my own mbuna tank - I reckon everyone should have one! LOL

Any plans for another species? I got my hands on some cynotilapia afra 'chewere' and they are the most amazing colour! A really deep blue with black stripes and purple iridescence - well, the males! :)

Sorry - like I said, I love mbuna. I get excited! LOL

With the catfish in there the tank is a little taxed as it is. No more plans for anymore right now. He is around the 5 inch mark.
