    calmness in the tank. I have two 100 gal tanks and the African chiclids are very territorial. I had one that was so aggressive I had to take him out when we had babies, and I released them into the big tank after they were an inch and half long, and this aggressive one had to completey taken out and he is in a tank by himself, 10 gal tank. He digs in the rocks and makes holes, he is a card and he is about 5 years old and huge!

    90djbraman...that would truly be a dream!  The only way I can think of to achieve that is by packing in as many African Cichlids so that the boundaries are not easy to identify - they are less territorial.  At the Georgia Aquarium there is a tank full of them - and they are just swimming in place - there's no room to fuss and fight!

    My dream African Cichlid tank would be about 200 gallons and filled with Tropheus Cichilds.  Tank would have to be equipped with underwater camera system so that I could study their behaviors.
