    Am I dreaming/kidding myself?

    just wondering if this is possible, or even worth it?

    I know they can get big, so am probably pushing s--t uphill. But thought I'd ask anyway.
    Be careful, that light you see at the end of the tunnel, could be a train!!

    you could put some of the smaller ones in there but not too many, demasoni is the first to come to mind. you could also do some dwarf cichlids. you would need a good amount of filtration though.
    55 gal lightly planted mbuna

    You could do either one species and have one male and two to three females, or just three or four males of any species.

    that sounds interesting but do you mean species of mbuna or just the smaller varieties like demasoni and dwarf cichlids?

    Just mbunas. You do not want to mix mbunas with any other types of cichlids, at least not cichlids from anywhere besides Lake Malawi.
