Hi,

any thoughts on an mixing Cynotilapia afra white top, yellow labs and rustys together?

My setup is a 90 gallon corner tank with around 1/3 of it as ocean rock.

I was thinking of 4-5 of each.

Should be fine, stocking is roughly the same as a 75g 48"x18" assuming your tank is 48"w x 34" x 25". Personally I would go less than 1/3 as rock.

Hmmm, not sure about that footprint being comparable to a 75G rectangle. Even in a 55G each male would have a 12" x 12" square he could claim. I don't think you can get that out of the triangle shape with longest dimension being 48". You are sort of chopping off the back corners of a 48" rectangle.

Or the other way you can picture it is half of a 34" cube cut diagonally.

My hara are pretty aggressive and definitely big. I sold a male not even 2 years old that was over 5 inches.

Yeah, it's a different shape, but it actually works out to a slightly larger surface area than a 75g but I suppose shape should be taken into consideration.
White top hara, one of the few large cyno's, my bad ;)
