50 gallon stocking list
Ok, so this is probably way off, but I found these online and was wondering if they would work.
I have a 50 gallon tank, the pH is around 8-8.2, my hardness is around 7 and I have plenty of lava rocks and hiding spots:-)
I'm planning on a Malawi Mbuna tank.
-1 male and 4 females of each:
Elongatus Kanchedza (Buy Live Elongatus Kanchedza .)
Metriaclima Callainos (Buy Live Cobalt Blue Zebra Metriaclima Callainos)
Red Top Ndumbi (Buy Live Red Top Ndumbi Pseudotropheus sp. "Perspicax Orange Cap")
hopefully these can coexist?
Thanks for helping me haha,
Stock looks fine to me. I would recommend a 4ft tank assuming the 50 gallon is only 3ft. You would be surprised how much that foot helps at keeping aggression down. Could we get the dimensions of your 50?
I think the stock list is great. The biggest concern with mbunas is the amount of territory and the amount of hiding spots. As long as you have enough rock inlets and caves you are fine. When I kept mbunas I had a ton of limestone stacked in the tank to make caves and break up the sight lines. It also helped keep the hardness up since i used sand in my tank and no crushed coral, although it does not look like you need buffer your water any more.
Alrighty, so it looks like my stock list is good, so now for the tank. I have lots of lava rock, some limestone, and crushed coral as gravel. I think I have enough hiding spots but I'm not 100% sure. I would think that anything else would take up swimming space? Here is some pics...
P.S. There is a lot more hiding spots in the lava rock then it looks and the dragon I have bubbles you also can't really tell that.
