Red Cap Lethrinops - all male tank?

Does a red cap belong in an all male tank with haps and peacocks?

I've never had any luck. I've tried a red cap and 2 lethrinops oculatus and none of them worked out.

Same experience here with lethrinops. Beautiful in a species tank but pale in all male.

Thanks for the heads up.

In the right tank, they are some of the nicest Malawi cichlids... but they don't mix well with anything more aggressive, which is pretty much everything else.
