Neolamprologus caudopunctatus

I've been growing these out in a 20 gal high for months now. We picked up a bag of 6 at a club meeting and ended up with 5. Based on size and coloration, I believe we have 2 males and 3 females. The largest 2 fish are about 2", so they have a ways to go to max adult size, but they have started displaying lately. Cross your fingers!

Anyone who has kept these before and has any input, please feel free to share it. (Statenislandcichlids, freakgecko, I'm looking at you)

Personally I have not kept these but very pretty....but as most shellies I recommend culling tank when to over populated more than trying to get fry from shell.

Hey Severum mama, where did you get your shells for the tank? I have been looking all over for those.

The only shellies I have long term personal experience with are multies (not for lack of wanting new species, just lack of space and money). I believe there was a member on here who had them and they had just started to breed, Trustmedia I believe, but I haven't seen them on in a while

Haha, I actually have them in the tank next door to our multies. They flare at one another through the glass a lot.

Never kept them myself, but from what I've read about them a 20 high might just be big enough for 1 pair, really need more space for more of them.

Oof. Well that would take some major rearranging, but I will keep an eye on them and figure something out if need be. Thanks for the input.
