Electric yellow labs are one of the more mild-mannered Malawi cichlids, but they are still cichlids to be sure. I still wouldn't mix them with those other fish both because you might get aggression issues and because they prefer hard, alkaline water which the other fish wouldn't appreciate.

None of your fish will ever work with the yellow labs. Consider the water chemistry first thing, dietary requirements, compatibility and space issues.

Motion seconded. You should not be mixing South American Cichlids with African Cichlids.

Furthermore, an Oscar will outgrow the Yellow labs within only a few months. As soon as they can fit them into their mouths, they will seek to do exactly that.

I want to advice this; you should buy 4 electric yellow(1 male 3 female). They are malawi chiclids. They aren't combative. But a lot of american chiclids are very combative. I have lots of electric yellow. They are great fish and they can repoduce very easy and they are beautiful fish. If you want to feed american chicleds than you shouldn't feed electric yellow.Becasue maybe they can be fight.
(if I can't explain I am sorry because i don't now english enough).
