Hi there,

I have a Q concerning tank size.

On sketch below you can see my idea, I already have this type of tanks and I wish to keep my Tropheus in it.
The point and positional problem is in dimension 35 cm (as on sketch). Is it lets say a problem for Tropheus to live in "shallow tank". They will have water deep as 30-32cm (I count 3-5cm of sand).

I read several articles on internet and learned that many Tropheus live in shallow water, grazing on rocks and only sometimes they go to deeper water.

What is your opinion on this issue???

A must mention that I already keep two species in this type of tank and I can see no problem...some of them they even started to breed for the first time....

All opinions are appreciated...

I'm having a little trouble reading the numbers on your picture. That being said, I think a tank that is only about one foot in height is a little too shallow for adult trophs. I think you will want 18 inches at least. Anything over 28 inches I suspect is a waste.

Thats my opinion and I'm sure others might see it differently.
