    Default Yellow lab cichlid

    Hello guys.
    I've got right now Fire eel, around 6".
    I want to bring 4-5 little yellow labs and let them grow up and breed. Also, my friend want to give me his white snow crayfish, I've got plenty of hiding places (was mixed mabuna tank before), 60gallon tank. Will that mix be alright? As I read and had experienced the yellow lab is a peaceful cichlid, and swim fast as regular mabuna. They can live with the white crayfish?

    Btw- I've got also 630 gallon tank, when the fire eel grow up, I'll move him to there. He just too small for that tank right now.. So don't worry about him staying at a 60 😉👍🏼

    The yellow labs would be ok with the crayfish but I'm not sure about the eel. Mostly because the eel and crayfish will be inhabiting the same areas of the tank and the eel will be vulnerable. I would love to see your 630 gallon tank, please post some pictures. What do you have in it?
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Eels are actually usually fine with cichlids provided they're too large to be eaten. However, fire eels are soft acidic water river fish, and yellow Lab's are on the opposite side of the water chemistry scale.
