I personally would say no the fish need the length whether you have 1 or 10. Also if you keep just 2 you may end up with large amounts of aggression and one could kill of the other. I found with mine when I had 6 in my 75 gallon the aggession was to much and one got his fins eaten I know have 13 and find it is much lesser in aggression tho I also made sure I have 1 male to ever 3 females (I have one extra female).

Ok then. I guess I can keep the 3 but I still want to get rid of the others to make it an electric yellow lab cichlids tank. Then maybe later on when the baby cichlid grows to like 3 inches then I will add more. Do you guys know how fast these little guys grow because the baby is like .5 inch and super cute, LOL. And how long do they tend to live? Of course out of your guys experience.

They should reach full size in 2 years they will max out at 6" for males and like 5" for females. I would still try to get at least a 3ft tank. You can keep a colony of labs in that size tank. I would recommend 1 male with 4-5 females.

Cool, thanks for letting me know. I thing the baby is no more than a month old. I will try to get them a 3 foot tank but I just got this one and it looks huge on them. I will wait untill like at most 6 moths before I will try to get the bigger tank.
