- - tank size. (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/beginner-freshwater-aquarium/tank-size-5694/)
I was thinking of doing african cichlids in a used tank that I just got but was wondering if it was big enough to do so. It is a 45 gallon 36x12x24. I was thinking of building some sort of slate wall in it with some holes and caves so the fish could hide and swim thru but want to make sure the tank is going to be big enough. I am gonna figure out which of these fish stay on the smaller side and try to stick with them but that also depends on if the LFS carries or can get them.
What does everyone think.
its a good size for cichlids but u may want to research how big the ones u r getting grow to angels and dwarf cichlids would work i think
Kribs and Pseudotropheus some to mind initially size-wise, but I'm sure the Pseudotropheus can be quite agressive so careful with any tankmates.
I'm sure there are many other african cichlids that would work as well that somebody else might recommend.
I have now decided to transfer my planted tank into the 45 gallon and use my 90 gallon tank for the african cichlids.
