Some of these seem to go against many of the "norms" for compatibility that are often stated. In particular, I was looking at this "Mixed Malawi" Cookie Cutter under 75 gallon tanks:

• Aulonocara stuartgranti - 4
• Copadichromis mloto - 4
• Labidochromis chisumulae - 6
• Pseudotropheus saulosi - 6

I'd like to try something like this but am wondering about the 2 blue barred mbuna species. Help? Clarifications?

You are absolutely correct. I would not put chisumulae with saulosi, and the mloto and stuartgranti are on the timid side...not a good fit with an aggressive mbuna like chisumulae or even a friendly one like saulosi.

Some of the cookie cutters were written long ago and could use a review for updates.

You have been a member for 7 years and have seen that people post their stock lists and ask for input.

I personally have tried the 2 mbuna often recommended as a mix with haps: yellow labs and acei.

Having tried both, I prefer keeping haps and mbuna separate, but those 2 species at least will not kill or be killed by the haps and peacocks (in general).
