Was at the doctors and saw this tank, I want to do something similar so I had some questions. First of all is this overstocked?, it's a 50g hex
What type of African are they? Not the parrots
And which are male/female/or juvies.
Not only is it not ideal, but that particular tank is completely inappropriate for those fish. Mbuna need a minimum 4' long tank in order to have sufficient room to establish territories, and with the mix they have they really should have a 6' tank. It is also massively overstocked if there are 25 fish in there.
"Listen to some of these guys talk, and it's like they were born from their momma's belly with a fishkeeping encyclopedia in one hand and an API kit in the other" (unrevealed).
Yeah I didn't look at the shape of the tank. Mine is a 40 gallon long (makes it a 4 foot tank), with 4 Africans, and 20 convicts (which are a mix of fry and adults, I have 3 full grown and the rest are about an inch/ inch an a half or under). And I have a emperor 400 filter with biowheels, I do about a 40% water changes. I haven't had a problem yet.
Now before anyone bashes, I'm trying to get rid of the majority of the convicts, everyone but "big pappa". He's my favourite.
