Hi guys

First, while I have written many a reply, this is my first OP so can I take the opportunity to congratulate everyone involved in this excellent site.

My question is to do with the size and age at which most common Mbuna (Labs, Cynos, Melanochromis, Pseudotropheus, etc) become sexually active and start to spawn.

As with many hobbyists my first setup was comprised of a few groups of Mbuna from local LFS's and while they were young-ish - what you'd probably call late-juvies (around 2.5") - at least a few in each group were already 'of age' and getting into it.

However I now have fry from my Labs and Maingano, and want to know at what age and size those little-uns are themselves going to start wanting to breed.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
