Present inhabitants. It looks nice, but I'd like to move over my T-Intermedius, and Maybe my Lwanda peacock(who isn't too thrilled with his 180g tankmates.) from my 180, which is a larger hap tank, my Ngara Peacock and Midnight peacock.

I can get some photos later tonight.

The tank is a 125g with 2 Eheim 2217 and 1 Rena XP3.

Do you think I'm overstocked? See stock list and notes sizes to the right...

Top guys to remove(other than green terror that's just beautiful and hasn't caused a problem)
P. Milomo (I think it's a female, and I have a P. Johnstoni)
P. Ornatus (I have an 8" ornatus in my 180 gallon)
N. Tyranochromis (May move him to my 180)

Am I overstocked?

If so, what should I lose.

The Milomo I have may be female. This biggest agressors in the tank are the C. Moori, the P. Steveni and the Tyranochromis.. oddly, in that order.

But I'm not losing the Steveni or Moori, and the agression isn't that bad... shoot... that's what I want to know.. am I overstocked? if not now, how about as the fish get larger?

mmm i don't really think so, you are right on the boundry however.

As to what you should loose.......my personal preferance these days is seeing Africans with Africans, Mbuna wuth Mbuna, Haps/peacocks with haps/peacocks, you get my drift.
So in your case i would take out the fish that aren't Hap/Peacock os there abouts.

Looked at your tanks by the way. Very nice and BIG!!!!!

Once you take some out the peking order will start over, and the fish will battle for who's the top dog. But that's ok. I agree with the hap/peacock,or mbuna with mbuna. I believe less friction, and better color,just my opinion,but it's really what you like,and have fun with it.
