would this work
starting from when they are about 3/4 inch could i have 3electric blue, 3electric yellow, 3 red zebra, 2arratus, 2 cobalt blues, 1clown loach maybe cory cats or any suggestions for bottom feeders. in a 60 gallon tank with plenty of cover.
I wouldn't put cories with africans. They would just kill them off. I don't know about loaches but if they aren't aggressive enough then I would skip them as well. I just have a common pleco in with mine and they still peck at him, luckily his "armor" keeps them at bay.
I'm just worried about the ratio of male to female will be. 1 male per 2 females isn't very good, it should be more like 1:4-5. Because the males will constantly want to mate and harrass the females. The more females to go around the less stressed out they will be. And from my experience males within the same species will be more aggressive towards eachother. I had two yellow labs and one died, but the other one still lives with my other africans for about a year now.
I've discussed the issue on loaches and African rift lake cichlids in a few forums. Here is my canned explanation.
Not to mention that a single clown by itself is a very lonely clown...
