    Hi everyone.

    I have a 70 gallon tank stocked with 6 mbuna, but im getting more soon.

    I was wondering how many I can fit?

    Thanks everyone


    I hear alot of people say that its not a mbuna tank unless its overstocked =)

    Going to get some pictures up

    Yep, overstocking keeps down the aggression. (Well, I guess more like no one gets targeted). I have 22 fish in my 75G I think, but my demasoni only get to be 3-4 inches. And definitley more females than males.

    What do you have in there now?
