1. Mbunas love there sand idk were u read they dont need substrate. Pool filter sand or any sand will work i use black diamond blasting sand.

2. Synodontis are good tankmates for mbunas i have synodontis lucipinnis

3. Assorted means they put random africans in tank many being hybrids not a good idea to buy assorted.

4. Yes your suppose to add all the mbunas at one when possible, when ever i cycle a tank from ground zero i do a fishless cycle. But most of time i have cycle media to help me. Dont use minniow so the mbunas eat them there alot thing that can go wrong.
