Tropheus question

I Understand that tropheus are best kept in groups but is it ok to keep several types of tropheus in the same tank?

Yes, you can mix Tropheus species but a few issues can arise. The first one is each species of fish will have a alpha male so depending how many species you choose having a few dominant fish can create potential aggression issues. The second issue would be inter-breeding, this wouldn't be a issues as long as the resulting monstrosities don't leave the containment zone.
