 Hi  Friends,
 
 I'm  buying  a  few  Leleupis  and  just  wanted  to  request  you  friends  to  kindly  guide  me  a  little  on  their  behaviour  and  any  special  requirements.  
 
 Planning  for  either  a  species  tank  or  to  keep  them  with  my  Frontosa  colony  (  in  a  212  Gallon  Tank  )
 
 Kindly  guide  me  if  they'll  be  ok  with  the  fronts  or  are  they  too  aggressive  ?
 
 Thanks  !
 Regards  and  Care
 Kush

 Hey  Kush  -  they  will  do  just  fine  with  your  Fronts...  infact  add  a  good  colour  contrast  to  the  whole  setup...  Now  few  things  you  must  note..  you  need  distributed  stone  structures  with  crevices  for  these  guys  to  move  in  and  out  and  also  to  protect  each  other  from  harrasment..  these  little  buggers  are  aggressive  and  will  kill  each  other  in  a  small  tank..  so  get  plenty  of  them  (about  10  or  more)  and  provide  hiding..  you  will  be  good...
 
 if  planning  for  species  specific  then  you  need  to  densely  populate  them  --  with  plants  they  give  an  awesome  look...

 they  are  aggressive  
 i  have  seen  my  leleupi  pair  prune  the  tail  of  female  brichardi  and  rip  of  the  male  brichardi's  eye,  which  was  a  breeding  pair(brichardi)  in  the  same  mound  of  rocks  as  the  leleupis.
 
 i  have  seen  leleupis  coexisting  in  frontosa  tanks  too.
 
 i  think  the  leleupi  can  hold  its  own  in  a  frontosa  tank  as  well  as  a  brichardi  tank.
 
 there  is  one  more  very  peculiar  behavior  of  the  leleupi  in  a  community  tank  with  brichardi,  the  leleupi  fry  most  often  would  take  refuge  with  the  brichardi  fry  and  the  brichardi  parents  will  take  care  of  the  fry,  but  as  the  fry  starts  growing  the  brichardi  fry  notice  that  many  among  the  brothers  and  sisters  are  actually  intruders  and  will  chase  them  off,  but  by  then  its  too  late  and  the  fry  would  have  become  juveniles

 i  doubt  plants  will  work  in  a  front  and  leleupi  tank,  as  both  of  them  are  very  aggressive  diggers

 Hello  Jib,  I'm  not  talking  about  a  full-fleged  planted  tank  but  the  hardy  ones  ...  I  had  kept  them  with  anubias  about  15  of  them  but  dont  seem  to  find  any  pics..  you  can  also  check  this  youtube  videos...  they  look  cool  Smile  Mine  were  much  more  dense  than  this  so  that  the  leleupi's  could  hide

 with  fronts  and  leleupis  i  am  not  sure  the  plants  will  get  a  chance,  unless  u  tie  the  plants  to  a  rock  or  sumthing  so  that  they  don't  get  uprooted

 Hi  Vivek  and  Jib,
 
 Thanks  a  lot  for  the  kind  replies  and  for  guiding  me  -  really  appreciate  it...
 
 Vivek,  I  guess  I'll  keep  the  Leleupis  in  the  Frontosa  tank  itself  and  as  you  have  said,  they'll  color-up  the  tank  a  little.  Infact  I  plan  to  gradually  change  this  212  Gallon  frontosa  tank  to  a  Tang  Community  tank  -  the  fronts  are  already  in  there,  now  6  to  10  leleupis  will  be  added  and  as  soon  as  I  can  afford,  I'll  be  getting  a  few  Calvus  in  the  tank  -  with  your  kind  help  and  support  Vivek  :)
 
 Another  one  of  my  Dream  fish  is  Julidochromis,  which  I  have  so  badly  wanted  to  keep  -  will  be  a  great  help  if  someone  can  kindly  give  /  sell  me  a  few...
 
 Anyways,  thanks  a  lot  again  Friends  -  really  appreciate  all  the  care  Smile
 Have  a  Wonderful  day  !
 Regards  and  Care
 Kush

 Friends,  my  basic  tank  setup  looks  like  this  -
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Just  wanted  to  request  you  to  kindly  guide  me  on  where  (  which  portion  )  can  I  add  more  rock  work  to  form  caves  and  crevices  for  the  Leleupis.  I  dont  want  to  disturb  the  basicc  layout  (  the  2  rock  piles  )  as  my  dominant  males  have  already  claimed  each  of  them  and  also  because  this  setup  was  greatly  appreciated  by  a  lot  of  frontosa  specialists  and  hobbyists  (  on  other  frontosa  forums...  )
 
 Will  be  a  great  help  if  you  can  kindly  guide  me  Friends...
 
 Also  wanted  to  request  you  Friends  to  kindly  help  me  get  a  few  Julidochromis  and  Brichardis  for  this  tank,  if  possible  at  an  affordable  price,  as  I'm  totally  broke  and  cant  afford  to  spend  a  lot  now  (  still  paying  back  the  money  that  I  had  borrowed  to  buy  this  tank...  )
 
 Thanks  again  Friends....
 Regards  and  Care  to  all...

 Kush  --  I  suggest  you  get  hold  of  the  small  rocks  first  and  then  try  to  put  as  an  extension  to  the  2  rock  piles  you  have...  that  way  it  should  feel  as  a  natural  blend  of  the  existing  scape...  basically  you  need  to  try  various  scapes  before  you  freeze  on  something  that  you  yourself  like...  without  the  rocks  in  picture  its  tough  to  tell  you  what  suits  best..
