Cichlid Colony

Recommended Posts

Water has been in tank for a week now, and waiting for it to do its cycle. Its a 48x18x24 inch tank.

I wanted a fairly peaceful (I know it probably wont be) tank, with cichlids in it.

Can anyone see any compatibility issues with the following types?

Labidochromis Caeruleus

Protomelas taeniolatus

Fossorochromis rostratus

Pseudotropheus Acei

Hemichromis bimaculatus

Melanochromis Johanni

Astatotilapia latifasciata

I was thinking of getting just a couple of each, a couple of clown loaches and a couple of B/N's.

Johanni are very aggressive and will try score with electric yellows.

I would restrict yourself to

Labidochromis Caeruleus colony

Pseudotropheus Acei colony

Astatotilapia latifasciata single male

Protomelas taeniolatus single male

Dragon blood peacock male (instead of the jewels)

Some clown loaches

and bristlenose

rostratus get too big

and johanni are too angry

jewels dont look as good in Malawi water
