Thread: Help with Mbuna

    A mate of mine in an office a few floors up in our building had his tank spring a leak so he off-loaded his newly purchased Auratus cichlids (8 of them) to me.

    Since i had nowhere new to put them i put them into my community tank for the time being. They are very small, say just under an inch in size.

    Will they be aggressive from day 1 or will it take time for them to show it?

    I'm planning to buy a new tank for them but wont be able to do so until payday (28/29th).

    Will they be ok in the tank they are in now? And more importantly, do they pose a threat?

    Just generally speaking, your newly "acquired" cichlids are very young and I don't think that too much territorial aggression will be able to develop in one day either.

    Tank size is 65g and i have 2 angelfish, 5 neons, 15 Silvertip Tetras, 15 Serpae Tetras and 2 dwarf neon rainbowfish.

    I'm looking to set up a tank here in the office once payday comes along and would like to know if they will be ok in the main tank till then?
