    Famula, fasciolatus, and orthoganthos will work long term.

    But you might have a hard time with full grown monsters.

    But for sure, try it out and report what happens.

    Yeah....Famula, fasciolatus, or orthoganthos.

    Hell, I got petros killing each other in a 375g.

    I'd be scared to see what they would do to each other in a smaller tank.

    Famulas would work for sure.
    I ate my fish that died.

    Bigger is better - but is that a 7ft 210? I think its doable as long as you pack the tank. Got my moshis and longola in a 215 6ft tank and the get along for the most part. Just pack the tank.
    300g - Petrochromis Texas "Red Fin" Longola, Petrochromis Red Bulu, Tropheus Red Rainbow Kansanga.

    Listen to Thomas his tank is clean too!

    My issue still is with long term. Anything is doable if you have small fish.

    Longolas get anywhere from 10-14" in the wild. Can't stuff to many of those in a six footer.

    It's doable, but your fish will either never get as big as wc or they get too big and kill each other.

    Works for Thomas cause he got young wc fish.
