hap moori companions

Post by annie1302 » Thu Mar 08, 2012 12:58 pm

hello - new to the hobby - researching a lot about cichlids, I can ask three people the same question and I get three different answers!
I have purchased a 55gallon tank and was hoping to include the dolphin cichlid in the mix.
I need to figure out who would make good companions for that fish

Hi Annie!

I am big fan Cyrtocara moorii, but they when they are full grown they are really going to need more than a 55 gallon tank. You didn't say how many you were looking to keep, but 3 would probably be a good start if you are getting juveniles. I think you could probably do 2 other mbuna species, like yellow labs would be great, they get along with everyone and it would be a good contrast of color. I would also suggest any species of Cynotilapia, they also will do good with C. moorii.

Cichlid Power!
