New Malawi on saturday?
 
Good day all.

What kind of fish you looking for. You want stipes and bars? Do you want milder fish? I would do yellow labs and demosoni. That combination looks awesome and it works very well. You should get like 6 labs and 12 demosoni. You have to get alotof demosoni because they are highly aggressive toward eachother so you have to get alot of them. You could do yellow labs and cobalt blue zebras. Or yellow labs and acei. You could do three species of afra. I would go to http://www.cichlid-forum.com/article...s_profiles.php and check out the profile page and just look and read through all the fish in the mbuna malawi section. There are so many options...

just colourful nice lookin fish. ive got some labs and acei already/ they look nice

rrcoolj 01-12-2010 06:58 PM

well that gives me something to work with. Im guessing it's a 55? How many of each species do you have? I would get3-4 of the fish you already have If you don't already. Any of the afras would work. Females are dull though. hongi would be great. Socolofi might work. With any of these fish buy 3-4.

its a 65. i have 2 yellow labs 2 acei 2 red zebras 2 maingano and a pleco, ill look them up in google, any other suggestions

btw i really like the look of the mbamba

Increase the number of fish you already have to 3-4 to prevent aggression issues. You could get mbamba but again the females are dull. Get 3-4 of them. Your tank is pretty stocked as it is with species variety. If your going to add more your filteration and maintenence schedule must be flawless. How much gph are your filters combined and what's your water change schedule?
