Baby eater :O
I know it sounds kinda cruel but it's kinda true :$ Im gonna purchase a 55 gallon Mbuna tank and other Africans, but since this tank is generally Mbuna they can and most likly will breed. I personally don't have room for these babies!! But I'd keep some, maybee one or two of the nice ones! Or maybe sell some of the more expensive ones, but is there a cichlid or compatible fish that can maybe eat them in the tank? Because I just don't have elsewhere for them!! If anyone has suggestions as what to do?!?!
Thanks for all help!
55 gallons would be a bit on the small side in my view for both the Mbuna and the catfish mentioned .
syndondits petricola will work. They will not get any bigger than 4" for the most part and will gladly eat any fry that cross it's path. Get at least 3 though because they like to be kept in groups.
I am not sure if they breed the same way as the multis by eating the mother mbunas eggs and replacing them with their own.
On average, in a large tank without any population control only one or two fish out of every brood will make it to adulthood. I kept electric blue johannis in a 75 for over 4 years. I had about 8 when I started and ended up with about 25 when I sold them. If left alone and not excessively fed their population wont just explode over night. If you want zero population growth add three synodontis petricola. They get about 4-5 inches and will cruise the lower levels of the tank for stray fry.
Okay sounds good I'll look into some synodontis petricola :) there pretty cool looking too! :) thanks for the help guys!!!!!
