I have really fallen for these fish - thinking about bidding on them in a fish auction. Are they very aggressive and would they be good tankmates for the ones I have? Its a 55 gallon with 12 fish currently:
5 kenyii lombardoi ( 2 male/ 3 female)- I know these can be aggressive
3 ps. elongatus
4 lab. caeruleus

I heard I should overpopulate to reduce aggression, just not sure with what.

yes I have since found out about the Kenyii - but I have them now (the LFS which specializes in cichlids was NO help in choosing species). My question is should I add in MORE fish in hopes of reducing aggression or leave it at 12 fish??

you are probably right to remove the kenyii male- that should be fun- catching him. The LFS will take him - no real money or exchange in trade though. I guess I will keep the labs and add to them, say up to 8? keep the p. elongatus, I think they might be all males though. and keep the 3 female - one male kenyii.
thanks for the input
