Your opinion of Species 35 Male Tomato Victorian Haplochromide?DJRansome said:I prefer the borleyi and consider them look alikes so I don't keep them together. The females are also interesting with the dark gray body and red fins.
Most of the fish in your tank and the ones you are considering including the borleyi and empress need a 72" tank.
I do think the other fish you have already could be expected to intimidate your sapphire.
I got the male Ruby Green yesterday he is about 3 ". Its Weird to see the oblique half the size intimidate the Ruby Green. Hopefully this will subside.DJRansome said:I did find the oblique to intimidate my more timid males (like the sapphire) in the all male tank and had to remove him. He is great in the mixed gender 72" tank however.
