Hi everyone,

I've had tropical tanks in the past and I'm looking for a change. After deciding on Africans, I narrowed it down to Lake Tanganyika... The decision made a little easier by a work colleague soon giving me 2 frontosa and an electric yellow when she moves house.

I've got a 4ft x 2ft x 1.5ft with 3 large and 6 small pieces of lava rock.

My first question is : since I plan on buying additional fish, should I buy extra fish at the same time as collecting my friend's fish and introduce them all at once or is it ok to do it over a period of a few months? Thinking of territorial issues.

Secondly, how many fish would you recommend? I'm running an eheim classic 600 and an Otto internal filter.

Lastly, can anyone suggest other tanganyikans that might cohabitate well with my friends fish? I've done a fair bit of reading but the more I read, the more I get confused about the many different types of fish, their proper names vs their proper name, how they might live together etc. I really need a starting point.

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to hearing from you 😊
