I am setting up two new Mbuna tanks and was looking for advice on stocking. Tank size is not yet determined as I am going to add them two my new built-in books shelves. probably 55g tanks. Each tank will have 3 different species/variety of 1 male and 4 females of those species/varieties.

Tank 1 will have P. saulosi because I already have these fish.

Tank 2 will have Msobo Deep Maguna or Melanochromis johanni "GOME" (I like the different coloured females)

So what I would like advice on is what are 2 more species that I could add to each tank? Or maybe it is easier to ask what not to put together? Here is the list of fish I can get and like: :fish:

Nkhomo Lime
Chewere
Rusty
Afra Nkhata Bay
Afra Cobue
Lab. Chisumulae
Metriaclima callonios cobalt or OB
Metriaclima estherae Cherry red or OB

Thanks

Callainos with the saulosi and rusties with the Msobo. I would not do johannii in a 55G.

From your list I did not see others I wanted to mix.

Maybe one of the Cynotilapia or the Chisumulae for the Msobo tank.

No choices for the saulosi tank that are not blue barred or Metriaclima.
