I'm setting up a 20 gallon long and was interested in having one Altolamprologus calvus as the centerpiece fish. I would like some suggestions for possible tank mates. Filtration will be from an Emperor 280.

They are lovely but it will be hard to find suitable fish given the water parameters they need. I've always kept them in species tanks or much larger tanks with Cyprichromis.

How about Variatus platies? They will be fine in Tanganyikan conditions and the Calvus will enjoy the fry.
