Default Final 140g Mostly Tanganyika species setup, your thoughts? :)

Here's my final setup for now. The Jewel and Texas as well as some male Kigoma Fronts will need to go someday to my other tank.

Tell me what you think!

Thanks guys

These are the final residents: 8 Kigoma Fronts, 1 Burundi Front, 2 Leleupi, 1 Brichardi, 1 Daffodil, 1 Olivaceous, 1 Blue Dolphin, 1 Jewel, 1 Green Texas & 1 small Ancistrus.

I will put the Green Texas and Jewel in the 60 gallon or give one to a friend, and will remove all male fronts, except for 1 male in a year or 2 and will remove the 1 Burundi as well. I think The Leleupis and other Neolamprologus types will stay.

Yesterday the female Jewel overtook the Green Texas female as the tank boss, but both are very quiet and only really scare each other. The blue dolphin is 3rd in command followed by the Brichardi. The Fronts keep to themselves and you were right it was due to their new tank setup and environment (which has changed several times over in the last month) as well as 2-3 different medications which had them all confused. All seem to be sticking together and to themselves and all are coming to the front and competing for food. The dolphin will eat a lot of food but every Front and other fish gets their share. 1 Dolphin is manageable, 3 or 4 or more is a disaster unless it's a 220+ gallon tank. Anyhow love all these Tanganyikans.
