If you live in Florida and there is never a cold snap again like there was a couple weeks ago. Lots of videos of people who lost their pond stock after that bad weather.

Better to actually put your question in the post because you will get more replies after you lure them in with your dilemma. Some will just not open the link and skip the topic.

So if your question is about whether koi and African Rift Lake cichlids are ideally kept together, then no.

For one thing, koi are cold water fish and African Rift Lake cichlids are kept in warm water.

Koi can live in small ponds in the tropics, like Hawaii... don't know where gets too hot. Basically both the cichlids and Koi can live if the water is not extreme. Cichlids may die out during a cold snap, depends where it is.

Now Koi can get 2+ feet long in ponds, while Mbuna are much smaller. How that works out in the long run...? What will the water quality be? Koi do not really appreciate aggression, they are laid back fish with their intelligence bred out of them.

He added a large Tiger Oscar? Yes, this all sounds pretty darn stupid. He has another predator American cichlids too? After complaining about bass killing the Koi, he added an Oscar? Do I have this right?
