Seeing a tank stocked with mbunas is like watching a cichlid city something is always going on. how do you know what gender they are have you vented them? If you truly have one male and one female get at least one other female because the male very well may kill the female in time.
It was a guess from markings, I have not vented them. The alpha Lab has changed back and forth recently so I'm not sure. I will not be getting anymore fish atm as my tank is already overstocked due to a settlement on my house not going through (long story). Will almost certainly be moving in just over a month and have another tank in storage ready to go when I move.
