    Just wanted to get some opinions on some possible stocking choices. Im interested in mixing a few mbuna species that arent too aggressive along with alunocara maybe 3 or 4 frontosa, a venustus, lethrinops, and i really want a malawi eye biter but I know he might be too much for the other tank mates. I know your usually not supposed to mix mbuna with peacocks or fronts but i succesfully had mbuna and peacocks in my prev tanks with minimal issues. Any suggestions would be helpful. IMAG0050.jpg

    I would pick the 2 less aggressive mbuna species (Yellow Labs and Ps. acei) to mix a group of each with a group of different male peacocks. Also, I would add some Haps there too; like Copadichromis borleyi, Otopharynx lithobates and a group of the Blue Dolphin (Cyrtocara moorii).
    I would not mix Fronts with these fishes.

    Lithobates yes. Fronts no. I also don't think I would mix venustus with your Peacocks. Yellow labs will do great, acei or afras.
