butti's are not tanganyikan, or even lake cichlids...they are african riverine fish, and they are vicious. i think that even in that huge tank, they will fight 'til there's only one.(i'm moving this to the general african cichlid forum)

i'm pretty sure that they are omnivores, but i can't find any info on their diet. i fed mine a variety of foods and he lived several years and got huge.

yeh, they are omnivourse,a nd should be fead a veriety. i'm jsut making sure if it's alright to feed them like brine shrimp and krill 2-3 times a week. i was pretty sure that they can be, i'm jsut checking up.

i feed mine brine shrimp pellets and krill and more. that will be fine. i dont think that a 100-125 will be big enough for 3 of them. you can try 2 and get them really small (if you can) and if they fight then get rid of one of them or maybe put up a divider.
