Welcome to my tank journal. This thread is about my 28 Gallon Tanganyika cichlid tank. Currently I have two species in the tank 'Lamprologus' brevis (Katabe) and Neolamprologus leleupi (Lemon Cichlid), and they might be the only two species I keep in this tank.

Tank setup:
28 Gallon bowfront, rimless tank
AquaClear 70 HOB filter
70watt Jager Heater (81/82F average)
Fine Aragonite sand
Lots of snail shells
Crushed Corals (for High PH)
PH 8.0

Enjoy the pictures!

leleupi are good hunter. Worse yet, they have been known to pull shellers' female out of the shells. And in your tank that size, you should really keep just the shellies or 1 pair of leleupi. You might have calm and quiet tank now but wait till the leleupi gets more mature... First they will turn on itself, then they will start hunting your shellies...

Sorry to bring you bad news.

Nice tank man, I like how you went tang, I myself rather malawi's, but they are the most common. My fiance and I had the same problem too, we have 2 10 galls of cichlids that will be in my 90 down the road...
