All Malawi Mbuna
1. Johanni/ Interruptus complex type... and hybrids are common
2. hmmm.. there are a few yellow female/ dark male types, which include the Johanni types, and Msobo or Membe Deep... doesn't seem like a Saulosi
3. potentially nice Cynotilapia "Afra" type male in faded color, the black barring should turn on... there are quite a few locales

Thank you for your reply :) the Kenyi seems to really like the acei, could this mean the acei is a male as she is female? And there's no way they could breed right? As he's huge compared to her lol! One of our mbunas had some fry last week and we had them in a breeding box and the buggers managed to suck them through the tiny gaps at the side :-( anyway thank you for your help!

All Mbuna have the ability to cross breed; if they have other members of their own species available they will usually stick with their own kind, but not always. The size makes no difference; I have a 6 inch Red Zebra that breeds regularly with a 3 1/2 female. They make pretty fry.
