That is one species of malawi cichlids that I stay away from with good reason. I had a pair of them and within a day the male had killed a bunch of my cichlids.
Him and his woman got took to the lfs for free!

I'd go with another 2 females. I can't seam to catch a break when I buy them all the ones I can get are to small for a male to color yet and keep getting males

so far my auratus are playing nicely my problem is every one else
