Hi Everyone

I just cannot seem to make up my mind. Is there anyone on this Forum that can share their experiences with me on which is the best Aulonocara species to keep and breed with in a 4 foot 75G breeder. I want to keep only a colony of one male and 15-20 females but cannot seem to decide due to lack of experience. Had breeded with Aulonocara st Ngara only. Suggestions most welcome.

Thanks:)

I can offer a suggestion to stay away from. Aulonocara sp. 'Lwanda' - I love the fish, but I found them way too aggressive even in a 90 gallon tank. The male decided one day that he wanted to breed and the 5 females were not ready. He chased them all down in one day and killed them all. There were lots of other fish in the tank to go after, but he picked his own. Other people may have different experiences, but that's mine.
