Sweet! Got any more pics of the Calvus. I think a mix of black and white Calvus will be my next tank. There usually quite expensive here though anywhere between 15-40 bucks each, but so worth it such a beautiful fish!
Can't wait to see the new tank tank shape

they are pretty awesome, none of the larger cichlids pick on them. they can break up a fight pretty quick. favorite fish to watch for sure.

some more random pics:

ive heard of ppl who can have 2 pairs in a 10 gallon, but i think that is pretty rare. id love a species tank of these guys, the only time the get aggressive is when you are vaccuuming. ours bites arms.. better be careful. the pair will share a main shell and then the female will have another one or 2 shells, make sure you have a well stocked shell selection.

Hey Amy thanks for posting more pics of the Tanganyikans they look very comfortable and healthy in there big tank.Do you think 4- 2m 2f Calvus would work in a 50 gallon of is that too small? Anything besides other cichlids that would make for good tankmates?

they would be so happy in that. you can pretty much put anything with them. they have a very mild temperment. we have 2 small synidontis multi catfish in there and they never get bothered. they are bottom dwelling cichllids. i wouldnt put in smaller tetras, have larger ones, anything the size of or bigger then these little guys. they are one of the most peaceful dwarfs out there besides bolivians. i have a brichardi cichllid in the 170 also and they seem to pick on one another sometimes, usually the brichardi starts it. so i wouldnt advise putting those two species together. when we get a couple more females and see if they pair up we will be moving the brichardi to another tank or rehomeing him.

as for other tankmates like i said anything thats bigger then him, silver dollars, dwarf gouramis ect.

here is a link on the water conditions/ph/breeding requirments for lamprolagus brevis

lol oh. well. calvus can go with any fish larger then them. they are carnivoires mostly so they will eat small tetras, ours have eaten minnows and frozen fish/prawns/bloodworms. i dont know alot about breeding calvus but i think that 4 calvus should be fine in a tank that size. depends on the individual personalities of the fish. some fish are just more peacful in general. do some research on them. im not an expert by any means.

sorry i went on a long rant before! i tend to ramble on occasion.
