I have 30 Kirizas in a 180 gallon tank. They are three inches long, have been there two months with no deaths or health problems.
I have featherfins in my 90 gallon and they seem kind of cramped (used to be in the 180 before tropheus).
I was considering switching the two. Are thirty tropheus too many in a 90 gallon? When fully mature, can they breed in there?

I don't think it's to much.....assuming you do your water changes all the time. I have seen 38 in a 90g. To say the less it looked GREAT!

Like MJ stated 30 will work but IMO there is very little room for error....what MJ failed to mention that the tank that has 38 fish in a tank does look good but the tank gets water changes like 3x a week, wet/dry filtration, eheim 1250 internal filter and it is only temporary.

I agree with the other folks. It will work but you need to stay on top of it. I have a personal rule of 20 per 60 gallons, but I think 15 per 60 galllons looks a little better (depending on the rockwork)

Just don't procrastinate on water changin'! I had 37 tropheus in a 75g for about 8 months... 27 adults and the rest were juvies, they bred like crazy in there too (I got over 120 fry in that period)... Now they all live in a 125g and they don't breed as much as they did... Go figure.

seems like my and my buddy's trophs spawn better in 4 footers but i'd much rather keep em in 6 foot tanks. i think you'll be just fine with that group in the 90 if you do the h2o changes like mentioned before. also i've had good luck with overcrowding black sp. trophs a little more since they are so freaking mean. i feel like they don't target individual fish as easy.
