Hi, I have a Metriaclima Callainos (Colbolt Blue Zebra Female), and an Elongatus Mpanga (Mpanga Female).
And they are always mouth to mouth. Please help! :-? :-? :-? :eek: :fish:

What other fish are in the tank? You might have to rehome one.

@DJRansome - I own an Yellow Lab, 2 Mpanga's, A Peacock and A Colbolt Blue. (There is one baby from the colbolt and male Mpanga that is in the tank.)

@noki - I have no clue to be honest. I got told that it's a female and the other (Picture below) is a male

If your tank is 2 feet or 24 inches it is too small for the fish you have stocked.

Most Malawi do best in 48" or longer...some limited species might do well in a 36" tank.

So I need to Up the tank size. What type of filter should I get for it, I have the basic equipment at the moment.

I would not mix the mbuna and the peacock that you have. And if you are going to keep the mpanga I would go for a 48" x 18" or larger.

You don't want more than 4 species though.

You need to know what you have also. I see a male Labeotropheus and a male Elongatus Mpanga. Is your "Peacock" one of the oddity hybrids?

I cant remember what type of Peacock it is, I do know it isnt being attacked or attacking. it is just homeless. I cant send a picture of the peacock, its a NEF and too big.
