Is it possible to mix a couple of small Jack Dempseys in with a selection of peacefull Mbuna?
It may be possible, if not recommended by the sensible. I've seen Dempsey in crappy store tanks getting their butts kicked by Malawi cichlids, but if there is space in the tank the Mbuna may largely ignore the Dempsey, simply no real reason to fight much... now if the Dempsey got really large and territorial, that might be another problem you may not want to deal with down the road. How big is this tank? At least 75g?After_Shock said:Thanks for the replies, was hoping it may have been possible some stunning blue ones can get hold of.
