I'm not sure what you mean by SRTs (I'm new to Africans) but if you mean these guys then I am getting him some ladies in hopes he wont breed with my Labs but I haven't set anything in motion to actually breed them, if that makes sense. What I would almost like to do is keep the Hai Reefs and my Kimpumas but I do like my Acei and my Labs too. Sigh! Its a tough decision.

Decisions, decisions alright.
i just got rid of all my haps and peacocks and got some Elongatus Mpanga and now looking for some Cyno "lions cove". It wasn't an easy choice to make but one i am glad i did.
I say keep the labs loose the Acei's and breed them little cuties. They aren't that easy to get your hands on but you could change that.......for your community atleast :thumb:

My only concern with keeping the Labs is that they can cross breed with my Hongi. At first I wasnt into breeding but now....Im thinking that I might be! LOL

I havent had a problem with cross breading with labs and i have 2 males and 1 female hongi with 10-15 labs. But he definently is a good looking fish.

It is a gorgeous fish!
I wonder why Gibbs said lose the acei. I love my acei & I'm trying to get a longer tank for them. Since I got the acei alot of my other fish swim up higher in the tank too. I think they really make a tank come alive.
Thanks for sharing the pics :thumb:

Yeah my problem is that I like all the fish in my tank so I'm not sure that I want to get rid of anyone. LOL. If people aren't having an issue with cross breeding then I guess that I will give it a shot and keep the Labs.

Thanks for the comments everyone!!! *** really fallen in love with this fish :p

Yeah you're right dewdrop, i'm a big fan of the Acei to, and there is no reason at all to get rid of them. i retract that commennt :oops:

Thanks. :p Well *** come to the conclusion that I am just gonna keep everyone. I realized yesterday that I have 3 male Hai Reefs and no females. We had a few tussels over territory and the true colors came out. So I may have 1 or two of them for sale here soon. Other than adding some female Hai Reefs and some female Kimpuma and removing my Sailfin (I found her another tank for now till I can get a bigger one and she will be living on her own) the stock will stay as is.
