How many yellow labs do have? What other kinds are you wanting? You could keek up to 8 of them if they are as followed. Labs, red zebras, johannis, demasoni's, Auratus, Ect smaller african cichlids. Thos are just a few to name. Now keep in mind what the others have stated. You will want to Research them befor getting them. You will want to add the least aggresive fish first then last most aggresive fish. like said befor...... Again you will need a lot of hiding places for them so that way they can have there own place to call home.

Hi there. This is my 1st reply on the forum and hope my advise can help. What Im using to maintain my ph is normal bicarbonate of soda. Ive tried all the LFS PH buffers but it worked out to expensive. Bicaronate of Soda provides a good buffer because of some driftwood I have in my tank. Ph is maintained between 7.5 - 7.9. - JP
