    They're on the aggressive side (perhaps among the most aggressive species in the hobby) and are probably best kept in somewhat larger tanks (75-90gal) with other aggressive types. A hyperdominant...

    #1 is a yellow tail acei (Pseudotropheus sp. acei 'Msuli'). When compared to other mbuna's they're on the peaceful side. They max out at 5"-6".

    Excluding the shaking, the behavior that you've described seems to be expected. Mbuna's are social fish by their very nature. Small social fish are very secure in groups.

    Shouldn't be a problem with a breeding group. Venustus in particular have very large broods as far as african cichlids go (40-80 fry per batch usually, though 120 isn't unheard of).
