    well here's the thing,blue dolphins(cyrotocara moori)are more apt to frequent sandy open areas,and mbuna are rock/structure dwellers and can be very aggressive.Is your blood parrot dyed purple?A personal preference is not to support dyed fish.No one is judging you as we all can learn things from each other,as i have combonations of fish that some would say couldn't or shouldn't be done.cheers

    No one is trying to criticise you. sorry you felt that way. The problem is that they're "not all happy" like you say. The issue is that south american and african cichlids have WAYYY different water parameter needs. And while one of the species is "happy" in your conditions the others are secretly miserable... They may have adapted to the parameters somewhat, but that doesn't mean they're thriving. There's high potential for harm also.

    Honesly, you asked for help with tank mates. You should really serperate your species then ask for help with tank mates. There's lots of species you could add to either tank. SA or african. For instance.

    My South american tank has: 2x rainbow cichlids, 1x jelly-bean, 1x salvini, 2x angels, 4x clown loaches, 2x red/blue columbian tetras and 1x dimond tetra (125g).

    So, there's an example of a South/Central American Tank. I don't keep mbuna's unfortuantely so i wouldnt be able to list a reasonable tank or tank mates.

    Lastly, when dealing with cichlids its really trial and error from what ive learned. Some cichlids are fine together when you least expect it. And just the oppsite. You think they'll be fine (for whatever reason, forum, books etc) and then WHAM, they kill each other.

    Thanks,
    eRoc

    You asked for idea's and my idea was to keep a tank of africans and separate them from South American species due to the different needs of both. I couldn't suggest more fish when those two different types are kept together.
