Hemichromis lifalili tankmates?

Who plays nicely with whom? Will these breeds share a tank without eating each other? "Dis is da place"

Hemichromis lifalili tankmates?

Hi Ned,

What do you think about mixing Hemichromis lifalili and Rainbow Cichlids (Herotilapia multispinosa)?

I've got a breeding pair of the Rainbows that get fairly nasty when they spawn every 3 weeks.

If you think they'd be ok together:

Are they large enough to sex and/or identify known pairs?

If not large enough to sex, how many are in stock?

they have about the same personality...
both are semi-aggressive substrate spawners...

Lifally won't get as big

If you want to put them in the same tank
I'd suggest a 40 Breeder or larger
and have lots of hiding places with
Lifalily-size caverns that the Multispinosa can't fit into

we a have a dozen in stock
