Postby Rob04421 » Fri Mar 02, 2018 2:33 pm

Hi all New to Malawi and decided to stock mbuna particularly dwarf varieties I have a 190ltr corner tank with fluval External 306 filter, juwel led lighting with day/night controller so far I have stocked it with 1 - 2 " juveniles

3 x yellow labs
6 x yellow tail acai
4 x white top afra

Been in the tank 2 weeks after my tank cycled and growing bigger and showing great colours looking for advice on other tankmates any suggestions on some fish orange/yellow in colour

I would drop the acei, the get pretty large, and try to work out 1 male/3-4 females for the labs and hara. Being a corner tank, it's not the best for mbuna, but can be workable if you stay on top of things. Eventually you may see that only a group of labs will work. Rectangular, long tanks are normally preferred.
