Ophthalmotilapia ventralis

The problem I have with either solution is that you still need a bigger tank long term. Ventralis are pretty harsh little fish and the subdom males will need to get out of the way of the dom male as he matures. 6 foot tank all the way.

Also, they are very susceptible to poor water quality - something that happens in small tanks, too often.

I'd say calvus over tropheus as well.

Not checked for facts.

I would keep them with the Calvus before the Tropheus, I tend to favor aggression over food compatibility.

I have my Ophthalmotilapia ventralis Orange Cap growing out with some compressiceps.
