This is the setup of my 90 gallon Tanganyika tank made up of Cyprichromis leptosoma Utinta, Altolamprologus compressiceps "Lufubu", Enantiopus sp. Kilesa. The cyps are a breeding group of mostly adults and I have had them for many months in this tank. I have recently added the 6 compressiceps (one inch in length) and the 7 kilesa (1.5-2 inches in length).
A question about the tank setup. I know the cyps are open water swimmers so I don't have or want many rocks or caves. If the kilesa are anything like the foai I had in the past, they don't want a lot of rock cover either. But what about the compressiceps? Is this setup fine until they mature and pair off and at what length do they do that?
Also, does anyone know at what size the E. kilesa start to colour up?

135 Gallon: Cyphotilapia gibberosa Kapampa
90 Gallon: Cyprichromis leptosoma Utinta, Enantiopus sp. Kilesa, Cyrtocara moorii
45 Gallon: Altolamprologus compressiceps "Lufubu"
