Awesome...

How is the 5 X 3 tank coming along?


It's coming along. The fish have grown a lot. I've added some new ones. I just added some white top hara's. They are still on the small side but I hope they'll color up soon. I posted some pics recently under the photography page. Check em out if you get a chance. I really like your selection of fish. The msobo's are sweet! I should've picked those up instead of the maingano's. Have you had rusty's? I was thinking about trying them too, maybe in the 125.


I have had Rusty... They are good fish. A great filler fish if lookinbg for something in that color spectrum. They are like the wonder tool fish. They would work in most mbuna tanks.

The Msobo are one of my favorites...

I will check out the pics...

Hara wasnt even on my radar until I saw your picture. Msobo is on my "i really want" list, but your Hara's are amazing.


That one is really tough... If you are talking about a 4' tank, definitely the Hara. If a 6' or larger, probably the Msobo.. The contrasting colors in the males & females is really nice. It is almost like having two species in one.

If you have a 4' tank, get Hara & Saulosi. The best of both world's.

I would think that you could add the Msobo & Hara to your colony in the 125. Only 5 species.

I have 6 species in my 180... Cyno Chinyankwazi, Ps Acei-Ngara, Labs, Msobo, Labeotropheus Trewavasae - Mpanga Red, & Pundamilia Nyerei - Mwanza Gulf.

Could work.
