hi, i have currently a 65 galllon tank with the same foot print as a 75 gallon tank. i have 4 malawi's in it now (2 Metriaclima lombardoi, Labidochromis caeruleus, and Albino Red-Top). my question is should add more malawi's or just keep it how it is? and by the way will my current fish work out in the long run? thanks

you have plenty of room to add more fish. im not sure of the exact dimensions of your tank, but you could easy have atleast 12 4-5" fish. you could possibly get away with more if you have food filtration, 10x turnover or better and keep up water changes.

Your tank is way understocked at the moment, you could have another 15 easy, aslong as your filteration is upto scratch and can handle the bio load of the amount of fish stocked :thumb:

what is the exact dimesions ??

The kenyi (lombardoi) might cause problems in your setup. If you want to keep them, you should get 1 male and 3-5 females. You'll also need to up the numbers of the labs to 6 or more.

But you should add to your existing species rather than add additional species.
