    Ok, i have been surfing the web and have found that syndontis catfish are almost always found with cichlids in aquariums, and i should be able to keep it as long as i provide alot of hiding spaces and subdued lighting during the night, both of which i am quite capable of doing. Any other suggestions?

    Nothing else with them naturally. What exact filters do you have? I would still try to make sure you have either all males or mostly females, it may not be a problem sometimes, but it is too likely that if you don't have enough females per male that the males will get aggressive. Synodontis eupterus is common, hardy, cheap, a great looking fish, and should be what you need.

    Cichlid Man, I thought you had hard water from all that limestone?

    I think they are aqua clear brand. i dont think i should mix more than one male in their. I have also read that tetras are compatible. Would that be natural or not?

    Tetras are on of the most incompatible types of fish for rift lake cichlids. Where did you get that info?

    If you are looking for something that is with mbunas in nature then I think the synodontis njassae which can get up to about 8 inches is about your only choice. There are a lot of great other mbunas, why not add some of them?

    If you don't want other Mbuna's you can put either a featherfin squeaker or an upsidedown catfish. Both are compatible.
    I also agree with Rep....All male cichlids are OK. They are more colorful anyway.
    If you are going to have females, they should out number the males


    Sorry to go off topic here but I was asked a question.

    Rep, to answer your question,
    I have no clue why my PH is low and why I have to add buffers to harden the water.
    My land has tons of limestone, but also a slew of pine trees.
    Pine trees are extremely acid.
    It is what it is.
    My PH from tap is 6.0 and the GH/KH sit about 100 without buffers.

    If i wanted some more Mbunas, i found pseudotropheus scolofi, aka the powder blue cichlid or the pindani. I think that is another mildly agressive species. I i cant find any of those, ill getr a couple of syndontis catfish and som upside downs.
