in my new 180 I have a bunch of young of each of the following:

RED FIN BORLEYI COPADICHROMIS BORLEYI "KADANGO" - DOMESTIC
THE SLY FOX FOSSOROCHROMIS ROSTRATUS - F1
ALBINO BUSHYNOSE PLECO ANCISTRUS SP. - DOMESTIC
FLAVESCENT PEACOCKS AULONOCARA STUARTGRANTI "HAI REEF" - F1
ELECTRIC YELLOWS LABIDOCHROMIS CAERULEUS - DOMESTIC
YELLOW BLAZE LITHOBATES OTOPHARYNX LITHOBATES "ZIMBABWAE ROCKS" - DOMESTIC
LILULI SPILONOTUS MALES PROTOMELAS SP. SPILONOTUS TANZANIA"LILULI" - F1
KYOGA FLAME BACKS XYSTICHROMIS SP. KYOGA FLAME BACK - DOMESTIC

with the exception of the kyogas and plecos they are all malawi's

I would like them to breed, and I understand that once the big guys get big (fossos and liluli) it may slow down some breeding, maybe not, we will see. however I obviously cant have all these fish in there (each group ranges in numbers from 7 - 15) once they mature i will be weeding them out, picking and choosing the ones i want.

With several diff species will the males show dominamt colours if he is the only male in that group, cause there is other males from other species, or do i need at least 2 males of each species for prime colouration?

If you don't have multiple females for every male, you will not be able to trust any of the fry as pure since any lone male will try to spawn with any available female regardless of species.

I know haps can crossbreed anyway, but not sure about the specific ones you have.
