hi
oh ok.........well no would be the answer to that one then.
the mabuna would make short work of those IMO.
best to keep them species only.

anyone else like to add to this ?

Ok mbuna malawi's and tanganyikas are all african cichlids. I wouldnt recomend adding other kinds of fish with african cichlids. All tho i have seen it done. Now with that said. what did you have in mind on a stoking list? and how big is your tank.

Hey just looked at your tank under your aquariums. An read your signature. If i were you i would only add like Maybe 3 to 4 more cichlds. The ones you have now will get to 4 to 5 inchs. minus the Maingano they will get 3 to 3.5 inchs. The acei's could get 6 inchs.
