I have been keeping African cichlids for a long time and I have had a lot of them, in tanks ranging from 32g to 240g with the biggest cichlids.
Wow! Impressive, oh yeah whats your username over on the cichlid forums? I thought I came across you on a thread posted over there.

Mbuna (Labs, zebra, bumblebee) should not be mixed with peacocks.

Bumblebee ( Pseudotropheus crabo) is capable of killing everything in that tank. If it decides it wants to turn aggressive which it naturally is. If they are both male, they will fight to the death.

The red zebra and yellow labs will crossbreed and give you hybrid fry.
Taz I appreciate your input but it is advise like yours that made me shy away from Africans for a long time. You are right on the money on whats shown but missed 2 because they were not in that video. Here is a vid taken today. At the end is a shot of one of two fry I hope you can identify for me. I thought when they first showed up was Ruby Peacocks but I am not sure. I believe they are from 2 different broods since they originally showed up at different times in different sections of the tank and there is a very significant size difference between them. For the moment anyway the male Peacock is the holy terror of the tank.
