Astatotilapia sp 44 "thick skin" tank mates.

Thanks for the reply. It's a 40 gallon so I can't stock much more. Maybe I'll just choose one species to make a group, such as a group of otter point or group of acei. The thick skins are my main focus though. The to make is full color and about 4 1/2 inches. He rules the tank but he doesn't mess with the otter point much. The peacock hangs out in the upper reaches while the thick skins use the bottom.

The vics can be a little tougher than many others. Fully grown, they might be a little too dominant for some fish. Bigger peacock and mbuna are a great start.

What size tank?

Any of the fish you mentioned will do better with more of the same species in the tank. 1or 2 males and 3 or 4 females will enhance interaction.

No one? I added an aulonocara otter point male and a psuedotropheus acei. They seem to fit right in and the boldness of these fish have really brought the thick skins out into the open. They are now showing their best colors and eating better. The otter point seems like he may one day be boss.

Hello all
I recently acquired 2.2 of this species and I love them. They are doing great and one make is taking a dominant color. I was wondering what other species people would suggest with these. I'm open to suggestions from all lakes. I will note that the tank is planted and the Astatotilapia leave all the plants alone, so I'm looking for other Africans that will too.

Thanks in advance
Logan
