nothing else matter said:
i think you will over stock now your planned african tank, just like your CA tank :D :D :D it is really very tempting to add and add fish that you fancy. just hope you'll be wiser this time. take BV advice to check first with the african section of the forum. good luck :thumb: :thumb:
thanks for your concern, but I think I will try to be a little more cautious this time around.
I will be following the cookie cutter set up for the 75 gallon tank in the library.

so now the stock is

1 oscar
1 geophagus
1 small green terror
1 Parachromis loisellei ( thought it was a flowerhorn)
3 silver dollars for anger management
I'm almost certain that you'll find you are only able to keep one of the fish ^^^ highlighted in red in that 75 gallon tank of yours. Could be fine for a while as long as the oscar keeps playing 'referee' in there, but ultimately there's just not much space for the big guys as they continue to grow with such limited territories.

But again, good job so far with reducing your stocklist. Just a little ways to go now...

yeah I'm working on it. A lot of my local stores are not willing to take big fishes so I will keep trying to get rid of them fast. The butti and the texas i gave away for free. The store will probably sell them back for a few dollars. The texas gots to worth about $40-50 and the butti probably about 60-70. its a store in manhatten so they will get a good price.

I was thinking of making a mix of Pseudotropheus saulosi, Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei", and Labidochromis caeruleus. Do you think its a good mix? and whats are the numbers I can have of each. the cookie cutter reciepe says like 8 acei and 10 labs, but I want to add about 4-5 saulsoi's. So to offset I would have to change up the numbers like 6 acei 8 labs abd 4 saulsoi's? would that work? any help would be appreicated.

Chris...if you haven't already, please post this ^^^ in the appropriate African cichlid section of the forum (Lake Malawi Mbuna) where you will get more help. ;)
