C. Afra cobue

hi guys,

any experiences with these fish?
I've read about and am expecting typical mbuna habits, semi aggresive etc etc. any other thoughts?

They are going into a well established community tank with:
Melanochromis Cyaneorhabdos
Astatotialpia Latifaciata
Psuedotropheous Acei "msuli"
Dimidiochromis Compressiceps
an albino peacock of some sort(going)
bala and red tail (going also)

will be 60 all up in a 100 gallon not including the 100 odd fry in fry savers, and yes it will be upgraded soon to an 8x2x2.5H. Even then i will be overstocking as well as I've found it more managable then some may think. I only have 1 latifaciata male who gets picked on by the other males (5 lats, 3 are male)
Oddly enough I change the 30% of water every 2nd week,
Recent levels:
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 20 - never been above 40

final addition after the cobue will be yellow labs, then thats my tank filled and overflowing with fish.


Dimidiochromis compressiceps,
Astatotilapia latifasciata
Melanochromis cyaneorhabdos
Labidochromis caeruleus
Cynotilapia afra 'Cobue'
Pseudotropheus acei 'Msuli Point'
Aulunocara stuartgranti 'chipoka'
Labidochromis freibergi
Oreochromis mossambicus
Etroplus suratensis
