    I have a 30 gallon tank that is almost empty of fish as I have moved the fish from there into my larger tank. I was looking to make it a Tang. tank and include the following fish:

    neolamprologus similis (4)
    Black calvus (2-3)
    lamprologus ocellatus (2-3)
    Neolamprologus caudopunctatus(4)

    Will this tank be too crowded and cause too much aggression/stress if i have the fish listed above together? I've read that the similis would probably be pushed around the most and I might want to leave them out. The tank has a hanging filter, heater at 76 F, pH between 8 and 9, sand substrate with snail shells and an unpolished conch shell for the bristlenose pleco (currently the only resident in the tank). If 3 of the four might work I would like to try the similis, calvus, and caudo.

    All the lamprologus and neolamprologus would be way too stressed out, so I would stay stick to only one species. The calvus will need a 50-gallon tank.
