He could run into problems with the hongi, afras, and the unkown albino as well. Especially only having one of each fish (two with the afras but who knows if they are even from the same collection point). Hongi and afra females can get pretty vibrant and act pretty tough. The albino or the red zebra could go either way.dielikemoviestars said:All of those are dimorphic except the RZ, so they should be easy to tell...
You could pick one or the other between the chipokae and kenyi and stock them one male to 8+ females, add one group of zebras 1 male: 4-5 females and then probably something a little tougher than an afra (they are notorious for not coloring up when the are the bottom fish in the tank.dkgoode said:75 Gallon?
They can be forced to live together by your choice for now while they are young but when they get mature they will not be happy. I'm in a similar boat as you. I have a 75g and can't decide if I want to go all male or create a harem. I think I have the worst mix of africans in his forum as I speak. There are so many great looking fish, I want them all! I will need to make a decision soon.dkgoode said:Can kenyis and chipokaes ever live together in a 55 gallon tank. I really dont want to get rid of them.
It's not impossible but in a 55 it's highly unlikely, especially at your stocking numbers and ratios. You won't have to get rid of them as the chipokae will most likely kill the other fish in the tank once it is a full adult. If you're lucky he'll give you some warning and you might be able to save the others, most likely you'll come home one day to one big nasty chipokae in your tank and a bunch of fish corpses. Good luck on your tank you've got a tough one on your hands.dkgoode said:Can kenyis and chipokaes ever live together in a 55 gallon tank. I really dont want to get rid of them.
Well if I was to try and do a all male tank could I keep the Chipokae or a Kenyi. Or will I need to get less aggressive Mbunadkgoode said:[quoteGaFishMan1181
