Hi everybody!

I have three Neolamprologus Multifasciatus in a 20 gallon long. I have had them for about two weeks now, and I was hoping to add some other cichlids to the tank.

Thanks

Pretty much won't work. Multis are Holey terrors to anything that comes near their collony.

Yes but I would do it soon because once the collony is established they may or may not accept new comers.

Your welcome. Also try to have at least 3 shells for each fish. The more the better. With a 20L you are in good shape for a multi tank. Mine are in a 15 and they are breeding regularly.
