Hello!!! Just wondering if this idea for stocking would work or not. :-? Any suggestions would be great! :D
I have 2 bio-wheel 350's for filtration. And 2 maxi-jet 600's set up as circulation pumps

Here is what I have in mind for what might be a pretty sweet setup!

*Cynotilapia sp Hara "White Top Hara" 1m/4f
*Labidochromis Caeruleus "Yellow Lab" 1m/4f or 2m/6f
*Melanochromis Cyaneorhabos "Maingano" 1m/6f
*Metriaclima Estherae Minos Reef (Blue Males / Red Females) 1m/4f
*Pseudotropheus Elegan Ngara "White Tail Acei" 1m/4f or 2m/6f

I think this setup would look really nice! I was going to go with Demasoni's and Yellow Labs, but I'm having second thoughts on that due to the Demasoni's aggression.
So any suggestions would be pretty sweet! I am fishless cycling my tank at the moment, but I'm thinking it might be close to done in a week or 2.

Thanks for any input!!!!!!!!!! :thumb:

I'd lose the estherae for two reasons. First four species has a better chance of working problem-free. Second, they crossbreed with labs.

Thanks "DJRansome"! You've been pretty helpfull so far, I really appreciate it.
I can handle 4 species anyways. I was kinda thinking 5 was a little to much. Now all I have to do is redo my rocks. I might start that project tomorrow (maybe). It adds to the fun in all this.

Does the ratios I posted seem to right around the ball park??!!
