Interesting! Yellow labs are sort of the common go-to mbuna, but I always liked them. They look friendly, but I’ve heard they are indeed not.A201 said:Mbuna are the most overall aggressive species, but worth keeping. Some are really colorful w/ a lot of personality.
Predator Haps are next in line. Bigger fish w/ bigger mouths. They too are often beautifly colored.
Most A. Cichlids available are from lake Malawi. Some say the cichlids from Lake Victoria & Lake Tanganyika are more aggressive, but I haven't found that to be true.
Since as far as African cichlids go, I’ve only kept kribensis, how does the yellow lab compare? The krib I had is at the top tier of most aggressive fish I’ve kept along with paradise fish, and three spot gouramis. As you can see, I tend to stick with the more peaceful fish!
