Could definitely do a Peacock or Mbuna tank too at some point just need the right stars to align lol. I think Americans are likely to be what I really want but I am being swayed for the first time in about 10 years.

Absolutely stunning!
I really love the Sumbu Compressiceps!
Yeah really nice - interesting species as they are actually shell dwellers where as all other relatives are purely rock dwellers.

Hmmm thats where the African side falls apart for me I like the recreation of the habitats of fish so I'd only mix them if the tank was very big or very deep front to back so you could have a clear rock area for the mbunas and the open swimming space for the peacocks.

The “big nose” Labeotropheus trewavasae, one of my fav that I kept and breed, beautiful colours and variants, funny face shape and cute when newborn. Shame that the males tend to harass females and kill them if the tank’s not big enough. I’d recommend a minum of 100gals, 400liters
