Oh they will breedd my friend. LOL I have a whole tank of red zebra fry right now. They took just a few weeks to mate. I love my africans I just switched to peacocks and haps from mbuna though, way too aggressive and too many babies.

The type of cichilds that Bigtay has (lake malawi mbuna's) are capable of hybridizing with each other if fish of the opposite gender of their species are absent in the tank.

Bigtay, are you purposely keeping your water level low?
