mbamba labs and Hap Nubilus together

Postby skurj » Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:03 am

I have 10 mbamba labs in a 46 g corner unit, and I would like to add 5 nubilus with them. The largest lab is under 3" with the smallest being 1.5in.

The nubilus would be between 1-2" in length, with 1m 4f

I do have to thin out the males of the labs, as I think I have 3 so 2 will be rehomed with no more added.

Can these 2 species cohabitate? I may have a go at breeding the nubilus, and am in the process of setting up a 20 and a 15 just in case..

What is the length of this tank. It has been a long time since I've kept nubulis, but I seem to recall them might be too aggressive for a small tank.

Well it is a corner unit, I think its close to 4ft across the front but 27" on the short sides.

It won't be 4ft across the front. It is most likely between 36-40".

The tank seems small, but you can give it a go.

You are probably right just guessing as I am at work. Its a fluval Vincenza or something like that I can look it up.
