I have a 55 gallon that I would like to stock with Ps. Saulosi:





I am debating whether to do a species only tank. If you think two or more species would be better, which species? I was thinking maybe 1:3 Red Zebras, what are your thoughts?

I'd go with something with a little more contrast than Metriaclima estherae, which is orange. Too similar to the female saulosi, which is yellow-orange.

Perlmutt? Socolofi?

I was going to do a species tank with saulosi, but I couldn't find any for sale, and I had waited about a month. So I went with yellow labs and demsoni which I am enjoying very much. :) I like the yellow and blue.

But I think the saulosi would look real nice too and easy to tell male from female, a task I am not looking forward to. I wish I knew which was which.

The dimorphic species are definitely nice.

What do you guys think about Trewavasae as a potential second species?

I'd want a bigger tank than a 75G for labeotropheus...they are both biggish and tend to be aggressive.

Rusties..stay smaller like Saulosi, added Rusty color.. Or, I found that my Red Zebras were a good contrast to my Saulosi. It depends on lighting. If I did RZ, I would want the Minos Reef, blue male, red females.

Mchenga conophoros "Otter Point"

I know they are Haps, but I'd think they should get along with the saulosi, don't get too big, and are very active. (Not to mention pretty and different)
