Hi there everyone. Im pretty new to the whole Malawi thing and Im Loving it. Anyways *** picked up a male and female socolofi today and when I introduced them to the tank the female started shaking at the other fish especially the Zebra which was the biggest in the tank until I introduced the female socolofi.
Is the shaking a warning sign or a mating habit?

Both. But you need more than one female for every male since mbuna are harem fish. Socolofi are pretty aggressive (I kept them for 2 years), so it's better to have 4 females for every male. Same with zebras.
