larger fronts and discus usually bring in some decent cash at the auctions.

Got my 12 mpimbwe from a breeder in California.  The two Burundis are back in the smaller tank.  Going to sell them eventually.  I like the Mpimbwe a lot better.  The burundis are about 3 inches now.  If anyone is interested drop me a line.

More works better.  I started with 25 wild adult 3 - 8" longola in a 125.  2 rocks, bare, 5 sponge filters and a 1,000 gallon per hour 2 double sponge power head driven filter.  The quantity is to mnage aggression.  These make the worst mbuna look like puppies. 

Anything less than a 125 and you will be in trouble long term.  I have 20 2" texas tembwe in a 75, but that is just a short term solution.  They will be moved with in a year. 

For tank mates - I love these petrotilapia tridentiger - big, fierce, never backing down mbuna.  These are the only fish i have been able to keep with the longola where the longola even pay a little attention to them.  They aredefinately diffusing some aggression.


Thank you for the response.  I may be interested in these down the road.  It sounds like I use a similar filtration setup as you do with my featherfins.  I learned the hard way with "fancier" filtration options, before humbly crawling back to the ol' sponges.  I especially appreciate the powerhead driven sponge filter.

petrochromis sp. redfin longola wild caught colony 21 young adults breeding
petrochromis sp. tembwe texas 20 juvies 
petrochromis ephippium "saddleback" 20 juvies


Mike-
    I have some questions about petrochromis that you may be able to answer.  What size aquariums are you keeping your petrochromis in?  Do you prefer bare aquariums with sand, or do you add a rockscape?  Finally, do you find 20 fish reduces aggression to manageable levels?

Thank you
-Steven
