Hey all, I've got my 75 almost up and running, and I would absolutely love to have demasoni, but I also love cyrtocara moori. Would demasoni be just too aggressive with the larger slower moving haps, such as moorii or placidochromis electra, or would it be worth a shot?

All of this would be in a 75 gallon tank.

I gotta say I just think it's a bad idea. Not saying it won't work but a bad idea.

Thanks for the insight...

Well I didn't think it would work, but would one male demasoni be okay in a tank with some mbuna and haps and peacocks? Or would the demasoni just be a problem

Chances are that he would be a problem.
Some members have had some success keeping Ps. Saulosi with some of the more robust haps and peacocks. The males will give similar colors to a Demasoni.

By the way, which mbuna, haps and peacocks are you referring? All male tank, or species groups?

Well, if your tank is longer than higher and wider, maybe it wont be a problem, but for cyrtocara moori is better a 105 tank, for demasoni it's ok, but you need many mooris for a better behavior. I have both species and everything it's ok, but at least in a 105 gallons tank.

My issue is tank size.. I wouldn't keep the moori in a tank that small, no matter who the tankmates were. If you are talking about a 6ft tank, I think the mix would work.
