hey guys i have 125gal with the following all male stock:

s.fryeri
pr.spilonotus
pr.mozambique
o.lithobates
au.baenschi
au.jacobfreibergi

m.zebra (albino)
L.hongi
ps.flavus
ps.demasoni
ps.acei
cyn.afra cobue

+ 4 clown loaches & a bristlenose

what i would like to know is what would be my best option for more tankmates???
all of my fish are happy and getting along now with barely any aggression, thanks to a few good comments on creating more caves and rockwork... :thumb:
+removing my psychotic stuartgranti peacock :eek:
(*** also revamped my 40gal sump :D )

i know someone will chime in and say dont mix mbuna's and haps, but hey its worked for me for over a year, im not going to return any of my fish because theyre all happy :D
i just want any input on what my best options are for more malawis so my tank looks less bare...

cheers.

how many do you reckon would be a good number? 10?
only thing is i allready have heaps of blue fish... i was leaning towards like 10 or so yellow labs because theyre wusssy and would be a good contrast in colour...

so would stocking more haps be ok? i thought i was close to my limit :lol:
allready got a lithobates.
yeah i wanna get a C.Borleyi, P.electra and Red Empress...
was contemplating a N.venestus not too sure on how he'd fit in , never had 1 but have been told they arent that cranky in an all male setup, is this true?

back to my question tho...
i want more fish and hopefully a completely diff colour, yeah my main focus is the now the haps and peacocks, but i really dont think more of the same will make the tank pop' like ten yellow labs or sumthing with a solid bright color (not blue).

however i think i may run into probs down yhe track with labs as theres a good chance of upping aggression if females end up in the mix...

what fish do you think i can add to make this tank pop'??? :fish: :fish: :fish:

WooHoo! just bought my 1st P.electra! :D
it really has a different character than all my other haps...
i drop'd him in and he started scavenging in the sand for scraps straight away! gutsy lil fish considering how big the others are :lol:

(oh yeah i actually forgot to mention i have an I.sperengae)
