these are a very cool fish to me. I have thought about it, but these guys are big time nippers. I would not mix them, instead I would keep a solo tank for the mbu if this is an option.

Best of luck. I will mix almost anything together........south americans/africans, fronts/aros, fronts/tropheus, fronts/discuss and have had some pretty good results (except for the front/tropheus mix).

Yup can be done, but there will be some nipped fins initially, and once in a while :) just keep the puffer full.

I believe my puffer is at least 10 inches now

I had one with my Mpimbwe a few years back he was 16 inches long when he died but I have to tell you. Its not going to be a nip when he gets angry and takes a bite out of one of your fronts. Its going to be a huge V-shaped wound that leaves your fish permanently damaged. He was one of my favorite fish ever but when ever he got angry he would really damage fish and he wouldn't even eat em.

I have seen people keep Cichlids with Fahakas even!

That said with any puffer except maybe the little amazonians and some salt examples its normally a sure thing they will one days snap a prized fish in half with one bite of their beak or take out a golf ball sized chunk.

I have tried my hand breeding Montrete T and almost lost a chunk o my finger...
