Keeping johanni with Maingano - Breeding Tank

Recommended Posts

Maybe a mod can move this to the cichlid section please.

These two fish look such alike. Are they the same fish ? and will they cross breed if I keep them in the same tank?

I heard that you have to keep the bars and colors very different to stop cross breeding. These two fish look the same right?

Johanni

Well the Johanni male would breed with an orange female as where a male maingano would breed with a female of the same colour as himself.

Does that make sense ??

So for breeding purposes i would say don't keep them together just in case they do get confused.

Thats my 10 cents.
