    0 Not allowed!
    been looking into getting another, larger tank. my question is, can i put electric yellow and demasoni cichlids together? and if not can i put electric yellow and electric blue ones together?

    haven't really decided on a tank size, however it will be large enough to accommodate the fish

    thanks

    When kept with enough demasoni they should work out. From my understanding you will need to keep the demasoni in a large group of 12+ fish. I have seen tanks with the yellow labs and demasoni and they are very nice looking.

    As for tank size I would recommend at least a 55gal tank.

    +1 to the above.

    Also with yellow labs, stocking a 1m to 3-4 females will help with aggression too.
    55 is also the bare minimum.

    my standard advice when talking 55 gal tanks and mbuna:

    google "cookie cutter" set ups, you will have a nicer tank than whats been mentioned so far...
