it's a big baby thus far, not bothering anything and nothing is bothering it. is it a very aggressive species?

They can be one of the most aggressive species of mbuna. Individual behaviour can vary though.

I always like the looks of these fish, but after owning an Auratus and having him bully ALL his tankmates almost to the point of death, I have decided that is one fish I would need to have in a species tank after hearing they are more aggressive than the Auratus.

Fine looking fish you have there too btw!! Hope his attitude remains unchanged for you.

than you. he's been in about 3 hours now and i have been watching him. he is my largest fish, about an inch or so larger than each of my 2 big zebras and blue pindanis.

so far nothing at all is going on. he's very active but hasn't shown any aggression. i hope it works out. i have acei and labs in there with him.

My male auratus isn't aggressove at all. He's matured now. He chases new additions in the tank for a few minutes then goes on his merry way. So has this fish only been in there since today?

yeah just got him about 6 or 7 hours ago now. picked up a canister filter from a guy and mentioned how i liked the fish. he just gave him to me. :)

he's in there with 2 red zebras, 2 powder blue pindanis, a bumble bee, a female kenyi, a mbamba, a pair of acei, and 3 labs. all fish are between 4 and 6".
