    Enantiopus and Xenotilapia

    Hi , my tank footprint is 72" x 18" , its 24" high so about 500ltr/100 gall (imp) , was wondering if it would be possible to keep Enantiopus sp. "kilesa" and Xenotilapia sp. "papilio sunflower" together in this size tank ? I have also been looking at Cyathopharynx foae but know nothing about them , could these be kept with either or both of the species mentioned ? I also have a small group of the smaller Cyprichromis leptosoma (mpulungu) , I'm guessing I would be pushing it wanting to add these as well ?


    Cheers , Sean

    Out of the fish you listed I would probably pick three of the fish.... I wouldn't try to push my luck too much but any combination should work. Although, if it was my tank I wouldn't mix the sifters as one of them is always going to look better than the other.

    But if you really wanted four species... add a bit of rock and you could always add Calvus or Gobies.
