Default Re: quick question???

Dwarf cichlids are indeed your best bet in a 30 gal. I have Mbuna in a 29 gal. I did this in my ignorance, when I first starting keeping fish. I will have to upgrade soon, or get rid of them. I have mostly Yellow Labs now, as I have rehomed the more aggressive ones, and that does seem to be working out. I have read that the Labs can be kept in a tank of this size, but if I were doing it again, I would not. I find that after giving them the rock work that they need, there is not a lot of swimming room in a tank of this size.....
