Hey Guys,

what of the 2 Options would you pick and are the number of fishes ok in the two setups? Im new to Malawis, but have 15 years of experience in keeping fish.

My tank is 150x50x60

a) Species only with Lethrinops mbasi or kande. 6m/10f

b) Lethrinops marginatus 4m/6f
c. azureos 1m/3f
any peacful aulo 1m/3f

thank you very much

I would do the lethrinops species tank because they color up so much better without other species in the tank. I would shoot for 5m:20f. Start with 30 unsexed juveniles and see what happens with the ratio, removing males only if they become a a problem.

This is a five foot tank so I think you would need 25 fish. How about 5m:20f?

I found them to be too timid to mix with usisya, so that could be good for getting multiple males to color.
