View Full Version : Colourful malawi

I'm sort of new to malawi's, but I would like to do a mbuna tank. I want it to be very colourful and eye catching. Do you have any suggestions?

I know I want to have at least five C. Afra and maybe some P. Acei. And a lot of red fishes! (It's a 150 gallon tank.)

If your looking for red mbunas and are new to the malawi scene i would recommend Pseudotropheus estherae.

Thank you!

BTW, can you recommend any green/greenish ones as well? Does that exist?

Some red fish that are good to have are the red oscars or some sordfish maybe you can even get some ghost shrip or soemthing

Those fish are not really suitable to keep with Mbunas cichlids as they want different types of water.
