Metriaclima sp. Msobo Deep

Bought a group of these back in late April. I think it is a great looking fish, unfortunately, killed all females.

The male killed the female?!?! I have 2M and 6F in my tank. Been about 6 months. Haven't even had fin damage. That's wild man. I'm sorry.

2M in a tank withomps44 is lucky. But 1m:4f in a 48" tank should work. Maybe an overly aggressive individual?

My #2 male is just now starting to color up so I may have to pull him soon but so far so good. I have them in a 72" 180 Gallon with 55 total Mbuna. Lots of escape routes and cover to get out of line of site. If all #%$& breaks loose i'll report back. I have pics and videos of them on Instagram at mbunaadventure2019
