Slight change 2 stocking list...ok?
 
I had an old post about my 50 gallon stocking list for Malawi Mbunas ...(http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/c...ng-list-57190/) there is some pics of the tank at the bottom, pH 8.2 hardness 7.
I want to replace the cobalt blue's with electric yellows. Would this be ok?
Here is what the revised list looks like:
1 male 4 females of each:
Elongatus Kanchedza (Buy Live Elongatus Kanchedza .)
Red Top Ndumbi (Buy Live Red Top Ndumbi Pseudotropheus sp. "Perspicax Orange Cap")
and 1 male 3 females of Electric Yellow (what my pet store has).
I plan on getting the yellows today so please respond...
btw is it all right if i put in the yellows now and then around January put in the other fish?
Thanks,
-Ian

Yellow Labs are one of the least aggressive Mbunas and should work with pretty much any other Mbuna. I would actually suggest stocking the yellow labs first and then the more aggressive species, allowing Labs to establish themselves before the more aggressive fish arrive.
