These fish are either extremely aggressive or get big.

By far the easiest to breed is Labidochromis caeruleus from the Africans. have a group of 1 male to 4 or more female.

What size is the tank?

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

They are more aggressive than yellow labs and need a decent ratio of male to female.
