We switched one of our large tanks to a mixed hap/ mbuna enviornment. Works very well. The mbuna keep the tank lively and the haps added personality. The really assertive mbuna will need to be removed when they get out of control but after a year or so it becomes tolerable. A 125 might be just too small for it to work but you never know.

We at first tried to keep it under stocked with mebbe two dozen fish. Not for long. They breed like rabbits and with enough rockwork a few fry from every spawn survive predation.

What worked for us was a lot of open space with rock work low and to one side. The haps like to sift so some sandy areas give them grazing oportunities.
