Discussion regarding only Lake Malawi species.

I'm thinking Msobo and Hara in my 75 gallon tank.
If I just stick with those two species what should I shoot for in terms of numbers?
If I go with a third species which would be compatible and make for a nice color contrast?

For 2 species 1m:9f of each.
For three species, maybe Maingano 1m:7f and then 1m:5f for the Msobo and Hara.
Another alternative could be white labs. Rusties.

So in the two species scenario probably have to start out with about 15 of each?

Or if that seems too much, you could get 8 unsexed juveniles and try to spawn the rest of the females. Have an extra tank or two to raise fry.

Thanks DJ. If I go with the Msobo, Hara, Maingano mix what initial stocking numbers do you recommend?

I would probably do the 18. Sometimes even with 2X the final number of females, I don't get enough.
