Although possible, Its really not a good idea to mix other species of fish with African Cichlids. Blood Parrots might coexist with some of the larger Haps & Peacocks. Mbuna would likely pick the BP's...

Looks like the Venustus scratched his eye. Fungus has attached itself to the damaged tissue. Prospects don't appear likely for a full recovery. Clean water & StressGuard will assist in healing.

Nice looking African tank. I like the look of algae covered Texas Holey rock. Bone white rocks look a little sterile to me. I have a 120 long African setup, hardscaped with THR.

Here's a pick of one of my Red Tail loaches aka Y. Modesta Botia. They look a lot like Red Tail Sharks, but are far more benifical. Great scavengers.

If you are dosing ferts. Might be a good idea to hold off for a while. When ever I notice my fish acting odd, like flashing, faded color, ect. I usually do a 50% WC.
