Hi All

After nearly 10 years out of keeping fish I’m getting back in with a 66â€

I wouldn't house all those Labidochromis together, unless you have no desire to distribute fry from the tank.

There are lots of other choices, but I have no way of knowing what is available to you in your area. Browse through the profiles and tell us what else you're interested in, and we can tell you if it will work or not.

Hey Kim

Thanks for the quick reply.

I thought about Pseudotropheus Flavus or Pseudotropheus Acei Yellow Tail.

What do you think?

Thanks

That would be a good choice. You can usually find them in either blue or black, I'd go with black and then look for another blue fish for a nice colour combo...Perhaps Metriaclima callainos?

The flavus males are nice, but the females are very drab.

Thanks for the help.

Metriaclima callainos might be a bit difficult for me to source. Had a quick look at the on-line retailers and they don't have any available (wild or captive). Any other suggestions? What about Pseudotropheus socolofi or minutus?

Thanks

Socolofi would be nice.

i think a tank with yellow labs and socolofi would be sweet
Agreed. That's my 90 gallon, with some acei and rusties as well. Very active, very happy. If you have the means, I highly recommend it! :thumb:

Hi Ya

I ended up with a list of:
Aulonocara Stuartgranti chilumba
Iodotropheus sprengerae
Labidochromis caeruleus
Pseudotropheus acei 'Ngara'
Pseudotropheus socolofi
Labidochromis sp Mbamba Bay
Pseudotropheus crabro

plus a few Syno's :)

Thanks for the help. Will post some pics in a few months when it is all setup and populated

If only I could get my hands on some Ps. minutus (some TRUE dwarfs)..... :drooling:

They'd go great for any dwarf mbuna tank......

Cyno. sp. hara
Lab. chisumulae
Ps. minutus

:D
