Need some Blue

Postby Funkster » Sun May 17, 2020 10:32 pm

I have a 210 gallon 6 foot long with 6 yellow tail Acei's, 6 Cherry Red Zebras and 3 Saulosi. I am wanting some blue color in there what would you recommend for some additional tank mates. Everything is now 2 males to 4 females I believe except the saulosi which is 1 Male and 2 Females

You will want 1 male or 3...especially on the zebras. I would add 2 female saulosi and 4 estherae (red zebras) for every male in that species group.

I like 1m:7f Pseudotropheus cyaneorhabdos Maingano for a brilliant blue.

I have heard they are tank killers?

Not anymore than estherae IMO. With the right tank dimensions and the right ratios and the right tank mates...most fish are fine and not tank killers.

I did have them in the demasoni tank for many years and may get them again.

I second the Pseudotropheus cyaneorhabdos Maingano... no they aren't tank killers at all, I've had them many times, and they've been fine.
