Hi everyone,
After returning 3 stripped females to my main mbuna tank yesterday (callianos, hongi red top, and yellow lab returned) I also took the opportunity to add 2 female albino greshakei's. The returning fish have settled back in fine (as usual - the hongi breeds so regularly now that she expects to be removed for 2 weeks, stripped then returned !) but the greshekei are hanging around the filter intake and not really joining the tankmates, I have excessive rockwork in the tank and a very peaceful community (the only semi aggresive fish is my male greshekei but only when being possesive of his cave) the only fish that has shown any intrest are my female white top afra and female flavus. They came from my regular supplier and look very healthy, they were acclimatised to the tank the same as all my fish yet really seem unhappy - any suggestions ? :-?

Could it be that the fish already in the tank are protecting their own areas of the tank (Despite them generally being peaceful prior to he addition)?
A mix up of the rock to disrupt boundaries etc might work if you've not already tried it.
Could be that it just takes them a bit of time to settle in anyway.
