So what i thought to be a male ps. flavus turns out to be a now holding female ha id never have guessed it because she has more color than the males! and my question is that i have a 140 5 foot long by 2.5 feet wide right now I have 6 ps. flavus 2 are male so one is gonna go, then i have got petro. sp. one male that i know of to five females, then i have ps. saulosi with 3 males to 4 female dont worry ill cull males and add females, then i have 5 rusties not sure of the ratio yet, and lastly *** got 6 c. afra minos reef all of which i think are male but i am in the process of getting lots more females and taking some males out.

So here is the question i was wondering if i could add a group of labeotropheus full. chalo?

The labeos are gonna be much more aggressive than your afra, saulosi, and rusties, so I'd shy against it, at least until your current tankmates have the right m/f ratios and are full grown.

With your tank size, I do not think it would be an issue of the Labeo's aggression.

Are the Petros, Petrochromis or Petrotilapia?

Which variant of Petrotilapia?

The Tridentiger get pretty large and rambunctious.

The issue is that anytime you add new fish to an established aquarium you can never predict what will happen. I still think that if it is going to work, a large tank such as yours would be the way to go. If you don't mind having to remove fish after the fact, in case it does not work out, then I would try it.
