how bout them? :thumb:

Is there anything specific you want to know, or discuss, or is this just a general shout out to perlmutts?

The size of the tank is important, but there is also a risk of keeping two Labidochromis species together as far as hybridization goes, so it's all going to depend on what you want from the tank.

You also don't want to mix two variants of peacocks if you plan to breed and distribute fry.

The only problem I see is the aggression level from the perlmutt and how it might affect the peacocks.

If you really want peacocks, go with the milder mbuna males, like Yellow lab, Ps. acei and Iodotropheus sprengerae.

You may have aggression issues if you accidentally get any females.

I know some people don't like albinos but I'd like to give a shout out to them lol. I love my albino socolofi and albino auratus.

I was kinda concerned about the aggressivness of the albino auratus but so far so good. I've had them close to a year now and think I have a male and 2 females. Looking forward to some fry from them. I've had a couple holdings from them but never held full term yet. That goes for both spieces of my albinos although with the socolofi I think I have 2 males and a female. I'm looking for some more of them to get more females. They use to be plentiful around here but not so lately.

Acei are generally pretty chill, and better yet they "school" better than most mbuna and like to swim around the top of the tank, which almost none of my other mbuna will do.
