Hi,

Hi,

I'm Alli, From central Scotland.

Just looking into cichlids for now while saving up to get a tank.

I'm thinking about a 100-150litre tank as i don't want to have to spend hours doing water changes with a massive tank.

I've been looking at the aquaticstoyourdoor website but wasn't sure if 10 or 15 fish would be better suited to such a small tank.

I like the look of red peacocks.

All advice welcome, and anyone in scotland looking to get rid of one of those nice fluval tanks with stands for cheap and a bunch of gear, hook me up :P

Alli
Firstly welcome to the forum.

Think that size tank is too small for Malawi cichlids mate tbh. You ideally want 250-300 ltrs particularly for peacocks.

Hi and :welcome: to the forum :good:

As has already been said the tank will be to small for Malawi and especially peacocks, my advice would be get the biggest tank you can afford and the minimum for dwarf mbuna would be around 200-250l and for peacocks I would want at least 400l
cheers,

Hi & :welcome: to the forum, I've got a 100L tank & keep Ps Saulosi which are doing fine but they are still young but will be upgrading to either a 3.5-4ft when funds allow
