Default Which Variant For my 55 gallon?

Please vote in my poll!

If it helps in your decision, the tank is set up with gray and white rocks on a black and white substrate.

Hello TrophsFromTang,


Hello to all,


Sorry, but I do not agree with the classification of the Tropheus moorii Moliro. The Tropheus Moliro ... according to Ad Konings, they would be sp. red, that is to say, species without describing.



For my the Moliro... they are Tropheus sp. red, they are more aggressive than the Tropheus moorii as Chaitika, Kalambo, Mpulungu...



Best regards,

聲gel

I am a big Moliro fan. That's how I would go.

Kipili all the way if you have access to them. I wish I did.
A larger tank would be ideal.
I keep a group of 15 Red Ndole in a 55 and it is working.
The deeper 75 gallon would be a better option.

It's funny when I opened the thread I thought I'd see the usual in the poll "Ilangi, Red Rainbow .... The usual" but no I think all three of those would look great. All nice but I'm in partial to the Moliro I miss my group and I love the way they color. The Brichardi are nice as well, I wanted Polli but I've seen some bad quality ones and it kind of scared me away but I love the lyre tail they get. Good luck on the choice and post pics when you put the tank together
