Hello! What a great site this is! I've had trouble finding info on certain Victorians, and this site is GREAT! I had a small colony of Dayglows years ago, and got distracted by mbuna, then Tangs, but now found a reputable source for Vics so I'm back! I have 3 new species coming in this week and i was able to get two others over the past few weeks. All fry, I'll be needing some compatibility advice soon, i'm sure. . .

Whats the smallest tank advisable to breed adults? (I know bigger is always better, but how about 20gal longs for species only tanks?)

Welcome to the forum.

A 20 long will be to small for most vic's if not all vic's. The smallest tank I have use is a 33 gallon 3 foot custom tank to breed vic's. The smallest I would go with is a 29 gallon tank with the more passive species.

I'm pretty sure Ole mentions 80 liter (20g) aquaria as suitable for breeding Yssichromis species.

However, for rock cichlids (which are by far the majority in the Vic hobby), he suggests 3ft aquaria at a minimum, ideally bigger.
