Hi folks, what is the general feeling on putting more than one type of afras in the same tank. is it not advisable or has anyone done it. i would imagine for breeding purposes they would have to be in seperate tanks to prevent hybrids. any feedback most wecome.thanks :)

They would interbreed. There would also likely be aggression between all of the males.

I think people have done it and at least some of them have found one or both species not coloring up well.

Agreed. the only reason to possibly have different Afras would be to have the different male colors... but you would be lucky to get the different males to color up so it might just be a waste of time. Just concentrate on one type.

I can tell you it's true for afra and demasoni. So I would say yes.

I had Afra cobue and jalo reef male in a 55g with other mbuna. They stayed away from eachother and dominated opposite ends of the tank.
