I have transitioned my Redsea 70 gallon tank to freshwater and I am looking to have Demasoni , a very slight idea about Red Jewels since they are considered Dwarfs and Yellow Labs.
Question 1: Is it possible to house both Demasoni and Red Jewels?
Question 2: How many Demasoni should be in with the Yellow Labs?
Tank dimensions are 36" L x 22.6" W x 56" H .

Because of the 36" length, the tank is borderline too small for mbuna.

If you are locked in to the tank, I would try a single species tank. Twelve demasoni (after removing extra males) OR a pair of jewels OR 1m:4f yellow labs.

I figured as much. I knew for regular Mbuna I was too small, just hoping dwarfs would be ok.
I'll go with just Demasoni then.

They can be more difficult to keep than other mbuna, especially in a 36" tank, so gather your determination!

You're asking for trouble with the demasoni. Go with a small group of yellow Labidochromis. It will be a pretty tank, and you won't have to become an expert in anger management. :thumb:
