Tanganyikans and Victorians

Hi all,

So i have about 30 fry of the Lake Victoria Mbipia cf. Lutea Crossbar Yala swamp. Im planning to sell all but 6, then get some other cichlids to try to breed. Would any Tanganyikans be compatible with these guys? Maybe some Compressiceps or julies? Or are these victorians just too aggressive?

Also, can you tell me some good fish that are compatible, good to breed, and that i can sell for a decent price?
Thanks!

Compressiceps will be fine. Pretty much all tanganyikans would be good. I would say peacocks would also be compatible.

I wouldn't put more than 1 in a 55. You could have a few Julie's in there too

So i couldn't do like a pair of compressiceps and then also a pair of julies? I know that with Malawi tanks you try to overstock, is that not so with Tanganyika tanks?

Comprisscieps require a lot of swimming space. You might get away with a pair. The six haps the only other tank mates right now?
