I am in the process of setting up a Electric Blue breeding group (1 male and 4 females). The tank is displayed in our living room and we want to add a few cichlids of different colors to brighten it up a bit, but we want to be sure that the blues stay pure above all. No hybrids for me. My husband saw a Giraffe today at a local store (probably not the one we would get though) and thought it would make an interesting addition. He and I both prefer the female since we are also thinking about a few yellow labs. If I strip the blue females, will a giraffe male breed with them? I would appreciate any advice as well as any other suggestions about what to add. It is a 75 gallon, but I am getting a few more tanks to house babies and possibly another all male cichlid tank in the near future, so I could move the Giraffe once he/she gets bigger. Let me know what you all think.
