 Yes.  A  3  footer  will  comfortably  house  2  males  and  4-6  females  of  L.  ocellatus.  No  idea  about  the  availability,  though.

 If  you're  determined  to  keep  tangs,  your  options  are  somewhat  limited  in  India.  You  could  try  getting  some  shell  dwellers  in  from  Bangalore.

 Abhisek........  I  tried  and  burnt  my  fingures.  India  is  not  a  good  place  to  keep  Tanganyikans.  So  it's  better  to  forget  this  Idea.

 Very  poor  availability  of  compatable  fishes.   Thumb Down   Either  you  dump  whatever   you  can  find  or  get  them  directly  from  Outside.  Most  of  the  time  you  will  find  only  Bichardies  and  Julies  and  nothing  more.  And  if  you  want  to  go  for  any  other  species,  you  have  to  spend  a  bomb  as  they  are  very  rare  in  Indian  Market.  
 
 I  faced  the  problem  and  learned  in  a  hard  way.  Sad

 Why  do  you  have  to  have  compatable  fish.  A  single  species  will  do  fine.  Smile

 Like  the  young  chappie  above  me  said,  a  species  tank  is  better  for  these  fish.
 
 Where  are  these  fish,  Trevor?

 Why?  When  people  can  keep  the  best  of  discus  in  Germany,  why  cant  you?
 
 We  have  people  on  our  own  forum,  who  have  bred  Tangs  like  shellies,  Julies,  and  ever  Fronts.
 
 Maximus,  let  me  know  if  you  would  be  interested  in  some  multies.  I  have  a  few  for  sale.  
 
 I  am  referring  to  Neolamprologus  multifasciatus,  if  you  were  wondering.
 
 You  can  take  a  look  at  one,  by  clicking  here

 Very  True  Sir.  But  as  being  a  Cichlids  beginner,  I  always  wanted  to  setup  a  community  tank  with  different  species.  :)

 In  Germany,  they  can  import  whatever  they  want,  but  we  are  not  blessed  with  that  kind  of  import  rules  here  in  India.  And  for  this  reason,  most  of  the  Tangs  are  rare  here  and  cost  a  huge  amount.  
 
 Correct  me  if  I  am  saying  something  wrong.
