will malwi and victorians cross breed? i have a feeling the answer will be yes but just curious. i have a group of 1 male 5 female haplichromis sp 35 tomato and a group of 1 male 8 female electric blue ahli together in a 90 galllon and i witnessed 2 of the sp 35 spawn then check a few hours later and seen a electric blue was holding. i will not be keeping the fry i actually hope my syno multies parisited the spawn but if the sp 35 was the other mate i know there is no possibility for this he was extremly agressive toward the cats so the sp 35 will be going into a different tank so just the electric blues and synos remain.

Yes, but with so many females and the one male of each I would be surprised. Although fryeri are notorious crossbreeders with peacocks.

like DJ said theres a chance however i would consider that chance very slim due to your female count. maybe you should just see if they are pure bred
