hey guys i got a 180 that *** stocked with a bunch of "peaceful" cichlids mostly malawi. I plan on having each species at a ratio of 3 male 6 female excpet for the PROTOMELAS SP. SPILONOTUS TANZANIA"LILULI" I will keep 1 male 3 females.

the list will look like this once i weed out the extra fish (i bought a bunch of each that are not yet sexable)

1 male 3 female - PROTOMELAS SP. SPILONOTUS TANZANIA"LILULI"

3 male 6 female - OTOPHARYNX LITHOBATES "ZIMBABWAE ROCKS"

3 male 6 female - Xystichromis sp. "Kyoga Flameback"

3 male 6 female - Aulonocara stuartgranti (Hai Reef)

I am running out of ''peaceful" cichlids that wont cross breed, its very impplortant to me that I dont cross breed fish. aany ways what I want to know is do you think its ok to add "mildly agressive fish that are same size or smaller then the smallest fish I have in the tank? I am looking at fisg such as CYNOTILAPIA AFRA "COBUE" they get only 3 inches and are mildly aggressive towards each other and other species.

If you think this is ok let know know. i would like to ad a few other species to my tank, such as the afra.

thanks!

You should be ok with that group in that size tank.

Be careful which Mbuna you add later though.
