Well Joea is right, in theory they can all mix up, but in practice it is not likely.

Cichlids with different coloration almost never mix, they will mix only if a female don't have any male and if male have no females in his domain.

The best way to avoid this is, as mentioned, to have enough females (2+) for one male.
I spend some time on cichlid forums all around the world and I don't understand when people have 1 or 2, max 3 cichlids of one species…it seems that they don't care about the "Mbuna needs" if I can use this expression they only care to have a variety of shapes and colors in their aq.

I don't say that it is the case with respectable bcb680 but I just had to mention this… :wink:

@ bcb680: are you asking because you have some doubts or you are thinking about getting these two species into one aq. so you want to be sure are you doing the right thing?
