I'm trying to put together a list of fish for my 125 that is cycling. I have a few must have fish and would like to know if they are compatable. This will be a peacock and hap tank. Would love to hear your suggestions. Also, have you had better luck with mail ordering or picking up from the LFS?

Placidochromis sp. ''Phenochilus Tanzania'' Lupingu
Cyrtocara moorii ''Blue Dolphin''
Protomelas taeniolatus ''Red Empress''
Aulonocara sp. x Ps. estherae OB

I have those three haps together right now in my 225 show tank. They are all pretty good with anything. I don't have any aggression problems and I have those three sp.'s with:
vc-10
venustus pair
2 ot. Lithobates z rock
8 metriaclima ndonga (giant demasoni)
2 aulon baenschi
2 aulon st. Usyssia
2 aulon eureka red
2 aulon st. Ngara
2 cop. Mloto
2 cop. Borleyi (red fin)
1 cop. Borleyi mbenji (yellow fin)
2 cop. Azureus
2 fire fish/dragon blood peacocks
1 aulon lwanda ( surprisingly the most aggressive fish in tank)
1 gib. Frontosa moba
4 neolamprologus lelupi

my point I guess is that you can do just about anything with those guys. The pheno is my favorite too and everyone in my tank leaves eachother alone since they are all so different and cause it's heavily stocked.

in 125 I would stay away from the vc10 and venustus though. Just me. I like variety
