Looking for Mbuna species #3

Postby GarPac19 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 8:55 pm

Hi all,

i'd like to add a 3rd species to my Mbuna 90 gallon tank. Currently, i am housing Labidochromis Red Top Hongis (7F/2M) and Psuedotropheous "Makondoe" Williamsi (3F/2M), total of 14 fish. I'd like to include another species that will "play nice" with existing tankmates. Can someone recommend a species and how many i can/should include with my current setup? Thanks much!

Maybe a trio of acei? I would double your williamsi females as well. Shoot for 20 fish total.

Ok thanks - and instead of Acei, can you see considering Lab. Yellow Caeruleus?

I would look for more contrast between the yellow labs and williamsi. Maybe white labs?
