Mix of mbuna species for 300 gallon

Postby GalaxyKoiBoi » Sat Apr 03, 2021 1:49 am

Simple question, what are 4 or 5 species of mbuna that can mix well? Going for color variety and compatibility.

I have a 75 gallon with demasonis and yellow labs and everyone is getting along well. Got permission (lol) from the wife to get an 8 foot tank once we are in a bigger place later this year, so I'm beginning to plan what I'm going to put in it. Preferably species with colorful females as well.

What are your recommendations? Thank you!

Are you going to stock this new tank with the fish in the 75 as well, or all new fish?
