I have 7 Altolamp comp goldhead in a 48" x15" x15" tank. I have two definate males and they do go black and fight a bit but nothing worrying as yet. I think long term I may have to go down to just one male per tank but at the moment they are all living and growing well together.
Not sure thier is a rule worth sticking to with these guys think each group might be different.
I am about to remove two that are breeding together in the corner inc one of the definate males. May be a mistake, may be the best thing for em.

In your tank craziloki,........................

Kind of think it unlikely two males will share just one female so yep on average I would add to a group of three that has two males (trying to get more females) or remove one male but prob only when two actually spawn or one male is clearly unhappy.

Why not vent the unknown guy? Would it make much difference to what you are goimg to do next? If yes then vent for sure. If male yep I would add more females if you can. If female I would prob leave em hoping for a happy trio. At the moment my guess is the middle sized one is more likely to be a sub dom male but it is only a guess.

All the best James

Sorry I dunno what a 44 pent is. Is it a 44 gallon tank of some sort?
I guess yep wheather you could add more comps depends on the size of the tank but struggling to say anything useful as I dunno how long, wide and tall your tank is. :oops: :)
I would not rule out breeding at this size if old enough I have seen some comps as mothers at less than 3" :eek:

Re your holding callochromis stappersi dunno much about breeding these guys but think you prob need a brooding tank or big breeding net quick, if you want to raise young it would take a super mum to raise any in that mix. :)

All the best James
