For a properly stocked (high female to male ratio) 75 gallon Saulosi only tank, what is the highest number of adult males a person could realistically stock? Also, how many females in total?

Thanks.

Shoot for 20 total with 4 females per male. So 4 males. It is possible that only one male will color well.

What could you add if you wanted an equal number of blue and yellow?

I would not try this with saulosi, but you would do one species blue like callainos and one species yellow like yellow labs. For a 75G rectangle it would be 1m:6f of each.

Thanks DJ, that's what I was looking for. Was not trying to get there with Saulosi. I should have been more clear.

I'm trying to decide whether I want a single or multi species tank. I know which mbuna species I like and would want in the same tank, but I know it isn't advisable to mix certain species. Might be cool to just do a single species tank.
