20L ideas wanted

I've successfully bred ps. saulosi in a 20g high.  I imagine a 20L would be a better fit.  Colorful and a mouthbrooder.

Got Dempseys??? Check out:

I know this thread is a year old but I'd like to bring it back to life.  I've got a 20L just waiting for fish,  .  I'd like to find a small colorful mouthbrooder to fill this tank.

Hurriken:  If you're still around did you ever set up that 20?  did you find any mouthbrooders to fit the bill?


I've got kribs in a 55 right now (the only africans I've ever kept)  they're great, but I really want to see some mouthfuls of fry.

So, all you african lovers out there, if you had a 20L with an UG filter and a small powerhead,  plenty of driftwood and granite boulders, and a limited budget,  what would you go with?

probably be just a single species tank .

thanks for the ideas,

-B

I may consider New Worlds but the Pseudocrenilabrus and Lithochromis seem really interesting and they are mouth Brooders. I am going to take my time thinking about it. The tank isn't even set up yet.

If you consider new worlds, any of the apistos and many of the Acara species can be kept in pairs in a 20L. with the apistos you could also add Cories and Tetras as well.

I have kept N. Brichardi types in Pairs in 20L. Any of the shelldwellers would work as well.

For sure Malawi is out. If you don't want to do Tangs then yea your on the Westie trail. I'm not real familiar with them yet. Vics could be an option but most of them are harem brooders and need a little more room than a 20 offers long term.

I have a 20L which I know limits me but Im wondering what I can do with it. First before you hit the easy lob I have been doing Tangs for the last 3 years and am looking to try something new. From my research Malawai is pretty much out so that leaves Westies, Vic's and Maddy's. I also have a thing for mouth brooders. On my own I found two fish I like but I have no idea if they will work or if they are available.

Pseudocrenilabrus - Well who wouldn't like the multi-color Vic but they all seem like nice fish

Lithochromis rubripinnis - these would be my first choice but I see no sign that anyone even has some.

Kribenis or Rock Kribensis - I'd probably go for a type you don't see every day.

There isn't a general forum so I'm going to post in New World too. I guess I'm trying to explore the hobby a bit more but my resources are limited! Thanks for any ideas you have.
