I am very undecided, I wish \I could keep both, but I hear they will cross breed, so i will not do that, esspecially to these guys who are endangered.

so, my question is what makes a nicer species tank, the ZEBRA OBLIQUIDENS (ASTATOTILAPIA LATIFASCIATA) or the KYOGA FLAME BACK (XYSTICHROMIS SP. KYOGA FLAME BACK)

also, on a less important note, I wouldnt mind breeding them, which are more sought after?

thanks!

ps its a 120 gallon, and would house at least 20 of them.

i will go with the flameback. flameback are becoming rare in the wild but the tank raised one is also uncommon too. between the two it really what people like so it a hit n miss from buyers. not too many people i know go into vic. speice most will go for malwai, ca, and sa. it also hard to get pure line flameback too. some for crossed now these days from what i heard.

Zebras are very plentiful around here because of some local breeders with prolific fish, flamebacks are less common, if you want the potential for breeding to mitigate the cost of your hobby flamebacks could be a more lucrative option.
