Need advice
 
I have been keeping mbuna cichlids for about a year now, but I'm going to change to less aggressive peacocks and haps. I have a 75 gallon tank with lots of rocks and caves on the bottom and I am wanting advice from people who have more experience than me. I have done a lot of research and I'm going with all males . So far I have 1 ob peacock, 1 rubin red, 1 yellow tail acei, and tommorow I am getting a venustas, a sunburst peacock, and a blue moori. What else would be good and are there any potential problems with my current stock. Thanks!

You listed a mbuna did you know?

Yes I do know that, but they are on the less aggressive end as mbunas go

I was just checking :) they should be fine in there with them. You'll need to keep an eye on it to make sure. The only thing I can see wrong with your stock or what your planning on getting. Would be some of those fish get REALLY big and the others are a pretty nice size too. Personally I don't think its going to work out in a 75, maybe a 125 gallon thats a 6 foot tank. I would recommend getting down to fish that are 6 inches or so.

I am a little concerned with that to. Especially the venustas. But I know somebody that breeds them so he has a place to go when he gets big. Thank you for the advice!

No problem and good luck
I wouldnt mind seeing some pics when your all done. Haps and peacocks are some stunning fish, I wish I would have went that route.

Lfs around me don't carry and/or can't get a whole lot. Have you asked them for a list of what's available? So you can go off of that might make it a weee bit easyer
