I just had a quick concern with my chipokaes and and my arautus I have. I have two female chipokaes and one male arautus. Are these fish compatible to breed with each other?

All mbuna will crossbreed given the correct, or rather incorrect circumstances, such as lone males with females of another species. Mbuna are harem breeders, meaning multiple females per male.

The fry will be hybrids though, so if you do decide to raise fry you want to make sure you don't sell them, trade them, or give them away.

Not only will they be compatible, but because the two species look very similar, it's very likely that they will interbreed (even if you were to have a male and several females of each in the same tank).
