the thing about mbuna is the strongest survive and the weak perish. you wont find many with good temperament especially when they reach the breeding age which is somewhere around 2yrs. dnt quote me but that's how long it took mine. you may want to have more than one male of each species you keep though, just sayin. your females with really appreciate it. the males are endless in there aggression!!! or you can keep all males, some people do

Grats on the fry!
That's a really good idea Mer-max! I'd definitely be interested once the juvies I plan to get are grown enough to sex.
I think I may start with 6-8 juvies each instead of 10, and then see how those work out. I'll watch behavior and hope for good ratios, but maybe I'll get some good temperament individuals.
Get in touch with me once you figure it out. Your not too far.

Mine are all tolerant. Surprisingly - the rosey red minnows I use to cycle my tanks are the meanest fish I have. Except my pufferfish and he's only mean to tank equipment lol
