Hey,

Im in the process of planning my next tank which will be a minimum of 4 feet long
I want to go for yellow labs and maingano, a classic yellow and blue combination with no dull females.
What other Mbuna species could I add with no cross breeding problems and male and female of the same colour that would compliment the blue and yellow..?

All Mbuna can cross breed, although I have found that, in my tanks, they will breed with their own species if possible.

You need to specify the length and width. For example, 48x12 think in terms of 3 species and maybe not maingano. Whereas 48x18 4 species including maingano and acei would work.

So if the tank measured 48x18 what could the forth species be to add a different colour
Cobalt zebra..?

Yellow labs
Maingano
Acei

The acei and cobalt zebra are both mid-blue IMO...not a huge contrast.

Rusties? White labs? Albino socolofi?
