My guess is that its in the same tank with other mbuna ?....if so then I doubt it will be accepted until it is of a size that it can stand up for itself. The advantage it has atm which is allowing it to survive is that the dominant fish probably dont see it as a threat for any females in the tank (juvies often look like females to avoid aggression), plus its small enough that it can hide from larger fish looking for an easy meal. You may have problems if its male, once it starts to mature it will either have to find a spot in the pecking order, or if there isnt enough space then its going to bump heads with any established fish in the tank defending thier territory.
But really it all depends on type of fish its housed with (all have differing lvl's of aggression) and space in the tank.
Edit - just read that back and realise that for someone thats only done an awful lot of esearch Im sounding like a know it all here
is there any experianced mbuna keepers that can confirm it or am I just talking tripe lol ?
