Hi there...

I looked up the dimensions of that tank. The tank holds about 350 litres tank measures 123x87x65cm. Its about 90 slightly plus gallons so that is good if you have great filters and water movers.
Its about 4 feet across the front?? , 30 inches on the side and 25 inches on the top.... good height.... and kinda okay on the side...

Now if your getting fry.. then you may be okay as they will go into the tank and grow into it.

If your getting Wild Caughts... Stick with one group only as two groups will be waaaay too much.. In my thinking...and quite frankly Wild caughts in that size of a tank may just not work at all.

You are going to need to have a good rocking setup for safe haven for the fish that need to get away..

If you get adult F1's or Juvies F1's, you should again stay with one group...

I am sorry if this burst your bubble.. but am trying to be honest...

Bill

They are all tank bred the Bemba are just starting to breed and the Moliro's are about 2"

I do have a couple of spare 48 x 18 x 18 tanks looks like i might have to put a group in one of those tanks.

Probably would be a good idea to put the Molrio into one of the 4 footers if that is what you meant by 48 by 18 by 18...

The bemba's if that big will need more space at this point...

Lets see what the others have to say..... There are some on here that will try most anything..

I suspect that some may also say that the two groups will have a higher incidence of cross breeding.... I am not so sure about that..tho
