Tanganyikan Cichlids - What do you keep?

11 years 10 months ago #2770 by Hurriken
J. Transcriptus 'Kisse Pembe'
A. Compressiceps Gold
Cyprichromis Leptosoma (I bought these at an auction as Cape Kachese but I'm not sure if that is correct. Pam Chin told me that only Jumbos have been found there. Out of the five I started with the two males are blue with white tips and a black notch on the dorsal. This led me to believe the were Utinta. Not several of the offspring have yellow tails. I bought these to fill the upper area of the tank and they have become family favorites. The breeding is amazing)

These are my first Tangs and my first serious Cichlids. I think I'm hooked!

larger fronts and discus usually bring in some decent cash at the auctions.

Got my 12 mpimbwe from a breeder in California.  The two Burundis are back in the smaller tank.  Going to sell them eventually.  I like the Mpimbwe a lot better.  The burundis are about 3 inches now.  If anyone is interested drop me a line.

More works better.  I started with 25 wild adult 3 - 8" longola in a 125.  2 rocks, bare, 5 sponge filters and a 1,000 gallon per hour 2 double sponge power head driven filter.  The quantity is to mnage aggression.  These make the worst mbuna look like puppies. 

Anything less than a 125 and you will be in trouble long term.  I have 20 2" texas tembwe in a 75, but that is just a short term solution.  They will be moved with in a year. 

For tank mates - I love these petrotilapia tridentiger - big, fierce, never backing down mbuna.  These are the only fish i have been able to keep with the longola where the longola even pay a little attention to them.  They aredefinately diffusing some aggression.


Thank you for the response.  I may be interested in these down the road.  It sounds like I use a similar filtration setup as you do with my featherfins.  I learned the hard way with "fancier" filtration options, before humbly crawling back to the ol' sponges.  I especially appreciate the powerhead driven sponge filter.
