They are best kept in large groups ideally 15 individuals.This will help with aggression and a good social group will be formed.They are best added as juvies and it is not advisable to add more to an already established group.They are algae eaters and love to pick algae from rocks in their tank.

They will be fine till they get bigger then you may have aggression problems.
What other fish would they be with?

Not always but they can be and they are far meaner than the other fish do if it does happen it would be nasty.One thing I have seen first hand with tropheus is that if they have a problem with another fish then they don't let go!!
