yah i read up mbuna is very aggressive,so i am not getting any.


so far occellatus gold is very active(and fighting amongst themselves like establishing pecking order.) enjoy watching them.

alto seems to still be acclimating in my 4ft tank ,still shy...should i get a few more tank mates for alto?

Haha the alto compress is this pricing la, market price in lfs, unless you buy from hobbyist who breed them will let go much lower. I think yours is gold head, but the pic below should be wild caught one. Of cos its better to have a comps couple but you really dunno whether a female and a male will become couple thats why usually we keep a school.
