    I have decided that I am going to go with cichlids as my main fish! As excited as I am I also feel overwhelmed with the immense amount of information surrounding them. I will also be posting in the Malawi cichlids thread for information as well. What I am wondering is can anyone help me create a list of cichlids that go well together? Also I keep hearing that you cannot, or can, mix cichlids from all three lakes. Is this true? If not why? Thanks again everyone for your help it is greatly appreciated!

    I don't have a Malawi tank, but I do have 4 Tanganyikan tanks and I do find that Cyprichromis, Altolamprologus compressiceps or Altolamprolugus Calvus and a pair of Julidochromis do very well together. Compressiceps and Calvus a fairly shy and the Cyprichromis help considerably in getting these fish out in the open since they act as a dither fish. I also have a group of Neolamprologus multifasciatus in another tank. They are little shell dwellers and they tolerate compressiceps or calvus very well. The comps and calvus are know for eating fry, but the multifasciatus breed so prolifically and guard so well few fry are picked off.

    I believe the Mbuna from Malawi are to aggressive to keep with Tanganyikan fish for the most part, but that is a broad generalization I'm sure there are exceptions.
