I wouldn't mix the hara and the callainos... I think the borleyi are going to get beat up. Nimbochromis species mix better with mbuna.

Pick either Cyno hara or Met. callainos. If you had both, there is a strong chance they would fight and/or interbreed.

As a replacement species, you might consider Labeotropheus Fuelleborni or Trewavasae.

That, not so sure. I know it will work with Acei.

I assume it will be okay with the Hara (it better, I'm doing that as soon as my Hara get big enough).

Both, as the female hara's closely resemble callainos.
If they were of the "Pearl" strain would it make a difference?

Thought that may the case... And then the brawl would ensue, right?
