    Question cyprichromis

    Are Cyprichromis Leptosoma Kitumba jumbo? I did some research and some say yes some say no. Your opinions will be appreciated.

    Would a six foot 125g tank support 10 Kitumba, i also have 4 black calvus, 5 cylindricus (hope to end up with a pair), 3 Petricola (may trade one), and 2 Clown plec's w/ 2 Bushy nose plec's. The 11 Utinta would be trade in for Kitumba & credit a LFS.
