Lepidiolamprologus Elongatus

7 years 8 months ago #34177 by mikeg2929
I kept l. Profundicola in a tank with adult frontosa. Very territorial, but easy to keep other than that. They bred easily and are great parents. Mine were 7 - 8 Inches long, wild, and didnt grow much in the year i had them. Nothing really hard about this fish, but they will eat anything they can catch. i assume elongatus are similar.

-- I can't speak for L. elongatus with certainty, as I have never kept them. However, I do have a pair of L. nkambae. When kept in smaller confines (tanks less than 75 gallons) they have been very nasty toward any other fish in the tank. I did successfully house them for a time in a 37 gallon with a quad of Astatotilapia calliptera. I eventually sold the calliptera. Neither of the species was very content in that setup. I also housed a reverse trio - before I sold the additional male - in a 75 gallon with a pair of Neolamprologus cylindricus. Both species are very territorial and are rock-centric. The cylindricus actually had their pick of the rock formations and the nkambae made due with the leftovers.
-- I am currently housing the pair in a 90 gallon with a bunch of large Haps and similar fish. This seems to be going well so far; they've been together for about a month. The tank is mostly open water with only a few rock formations. This gives the nkambae very little to be territorial over. The large number of active, large fish brings the pair out of hiding far more than when they were housed alone and distracts them from picking on one another as well. They are the only rock-dwelling fish in this setup. There is one gibberosa (frontosa) in the tank, but I wouldn't really consider them rock-dwellers despite a tendency to seek caves when they are kept singly.

Anyone keeping Lepidiolamprologus Elongatus? Wondering if the aggression towards other fish is as bad as some people say.
