If I had to pick one new world cichlid to put in a mbuna tank it would probably be a convict. They're really mean and they can adapt well to rift lake water parameters. The reason I still wouldn't do it unless I was forced to is because of difference in diet. The convict likes much more protein in its diet than the mbuna so it would be hard to give it the protein it needs without giving the mbuna too much protein.
