I have 6 pundamilla pundamilia nyererei(under 2inch) and 6 astatotilapia latifasciata(1inch) in a 75g tank.

I am looking to add a third victorian species with less chance of hybridization.
Could anyone let me know what fish are suitable for the above combination.

If I can;t find any fish I am thinking about adding yellow labs or msobos.

You could try "quasi" VICS like Astatotilapia burtoni or Astatotilapia callipterus, they really resemble classic VIC basin cichlids.
THe omni's or allaudi's are nice choices.

I like the Omni's because you can get them OB's (both sexes), so they won't resemble the other fish you have at all. I have some Omni's from Makobe.

Could try Paralabidochromis chilotes if you can find some. I have some from Ruti and the females are very dark piebald (WB).

Yellows and Msobos will also work.
