Default 10 gal. Neolamprologus spp. tank

I am looking at getting back into aquaria, and have experience with lake
Malawi cichlids. I am considering setting up a 10 gallon tank in my
office with Neolamprologus brevis, ocellatus, or other small shell
dwelling cichlids.

- Anyone tried such a set-up?
- How many would live comfortably in a 10 gallon?
- Are there other fish that would work with them. I have heard that
white clouds can do ok.
- Any of the shell dwellers easier to keep/ prettier than others?
- Any suggestions on avoiding breeding? I don't want to deal with fry .
.. . Do they eat thier babies?
- Is a smaller tank possible? I was thinking about an eclipse 6.

Any ideas, experiences are welcome.

Thanks,
Chris

Default 10 gal. Neolamprologus spp. tank

In a tank of only 40 gallons I would stick with only one species of
shelldwellers - even though they are hard to resist - and then keep about 10
to 20 of them in there, providing each of them with at least one shell...
