I bit the bullet and put a 55 gallon in my office, I need to move some fish around and such.
This is what I got so far and what I want to do; I bought 3 yellow labs (1-2 inches) and 4 Yellow Tail Acei (2 inches).
I want to move my male adult Afra, adult Hongi (sex ???) and adult Red Zebra (female??) and adult L. trewavasae (male) into this tank.
Is this a time bomb ticking waiting to go off? I'm kind of worried that the L. trewavasae and my dominate Afra will fight? On the other hand, I don't like returning fish to the LFS and I think this tank is large enough for this group.
Any suggestions and/or experience with this type of mix?

Thanks as always!!!
Tony

I agree, I don't want troubles in the tank. Regarding the Metriaclima estherae, I pretty sure it is a female. What if I add two more females and a male? Also regarding the Afra, what if I add three females to the mix?
I can return the Hongi and the L. trewavasae to the LFS. That would leave me four species.
Does that sound any better?
