  1. Default electric blues and yellows

    If electric yellows and blues are kept in the same tank, would they cross breed?

  2. Default

    The electric blue is a hap and the yellow is a lab. I don't believe they will cross breed and I also don't think it is recommended that they be kept together as the hap will grow to almost twice the size of the lab.

    There are also electric blue peacocks and probably a mbuna or two called electric blue by some, so it depends on how closely related they are and which electric blue we are talking about here. If you have mbunas there should not be open water haps or peacocks in the tank.

    Hi,
    The previous posts were excellent! It is gennerally not a good idea to keep these 2 fish together, BUT!
    I can answer this from my personal experience.

    While it is true that they should not be kept together, mine have been fine since May. I have LOTS of caves and hiding places, but never really needed to control aggression. They got along well from the start, and they have cross-bred for me.

    I can't say this would be true in every case, so if you have the option, I wouldn't keep them together unless trying to breed them is something you want to do. They make really beautiful fish!

    Exactly which species of electric blue are we talking about here? (for both people with them)

    I am not trying to cross breed them. I am trying to get alot of color in a tank. I have a 25 gallon tank with rosie reds and calico fantails. My wife wants to see anything but all orange...lol. I have a 60 gallon to set up and want some yellow, orange and blue in it.

    You should go with Peacocks or Mbunas, they will give you all the colors you are looking for. And once again what species of electric blue are you referring to.
