Hi, I have brichardi's and electric yellows in my tank and are about 1inch, How long does it take until they are ready for breading or adult size? If any one can also suggest what other cichlids would go well with these. Thanks

They'll never get big enough for breading, you can't get a good fillet and will need to cook them whole.

(I couldn't resist)

Growth depends on water and food, at least 5-7 cm for the labs to breed. Mine are about that size, and haven't attempted yet. I've got a terrible strain anyway, not keeping them.
