View Full Version : Grouping.Question

I moved last year and unfortunately lost a major part of my fish in my 55gal tank. I recently was down to 2 left. Now the only one left is a very dominant male (Pseudotropheus crabro).

My question is there Anything I can put in with him that wont get picked on to death?

A bigger meaner, male mbuna. Something like an M. auratus or a P. socolofi. Or a big "hap" that is too big for your tank. Or 5 bigger Crabo females.

But I would take him down to Petland Dunwoody and trade him for something smaller. Or dump him and and get a group of small mbuna on the forum or at the auction. Maybe some demasoni.

Trade? I didn't know petlandt would do that. I'm in johnscreek too. Is there anywhere close that will do that?

A small bristlenose pleco or 2 with some caves to hide in or a shoal or cories. Neons would be lunch, maybe some congo or emperor tetra.

Let me take this step by step....

60 gal tank.....
I have it well made set up for hiding places at many levels

I got three tiny angels.

My next group I want to get is a great showy schooling fish. I would like great Color but not great price. Ideas on kind and count.
