Haplochromis Nyererei Lake Victoria Cichlid
« on: June 02, 2017, 08:02:19 PM »
Can this Hap be kept with Haps and peacock's from lake Malawi I ask as there isn't much info on them.

Ok So this is what I have fond out so far.

The entire nyererei complex is composed of beautiful fish that make wonderful aquarium residents. Nyererei are undemanding fish that can tolerate most any water conditions. They can be easily housed with most all Malawi or Victorian cichlids and some of the Tanganyikan cichlids. Dominant males will almost always be in colour with fins displayed. The species adapts to a wide variety of aquascapes. full article here http://www.ohiexchange.com/armke/fishpages/fpage_punda_nyererei_python.html

I really like them
Anyone know anything about them.

King or chopstick would be the best people to answer. I'm sure they will get back to you soon.
Life is all about options, as long as you have something to look forward to, there is no reason to look back...now where can I put the next tank?

i have to defer to mikes judgement on this one. but honestly no fish addition is ever a sure thing. regardless of others experiences. ive bought dozens of fish over the years that had to be rehomed.

Thank you. When I read the article on this fish I fort it was saying that it dose mix well with all Malawi or Victorian cichlids and some of the Tanganyikan cichlids. but there are a lot of species so I fined it misleading in a since. There is no mention of haps and peacocks but they are also Malawi cichlids. All my pre orded haps and peacocks will be in and arrowed 5cm. So maybe if I was to get just one Nyererei at about the same size it would work. But I am only just getting in to Africans I have been keeping Americans for years so not yet had the experience so don't want to deal with massive aggression untiled I have more hands on experience.

I was thinking If I got just one nyererei of around the same size it could work. But the article is a little misleading I think.

It's not the flameback Id be worried he will be the dominant Male in the tank imo king would be better suited to answer as he now keeps that actual fish in a colony

I keep 3  Victorians, Neochromis Omnicaeruleus Makobe OB with my Mbuna. They have a reputation for being mean and they can be with each other but they do seem to leave the rest alone.
I don't keep Haps so couldn't say how they would get on. Mbuna can give as good as they get and I am considering getting a pair of Pundamilia Nyerere Makobe Island.

The environment for the fish looking out of the glass is far more important than the pleasure of the monkeys looking in.

Although, I dnt keep Haps...I've seen alot of ppl add them to setups with Haps & Peacocks. It's actually a popular thing to do here in Phoenix...
   But it's always a gamble whenever mixing different species and results often vary. It could work or not, there's no definite answer...
    If you asked me, I'd house one male to 5 females of the same species, but that's me.

    For kicks here's my Makobe Island Nyererei who also has just got me a fresh brood...this is Bogus, my fav fish

Very nice fish looks quality. I may try to keep one of them if it don't work then I will have to move him on its part of the hobby I don't like moving fish on just as I don't like to see fish get beaten up to the point they look half dead. But I hope it works because I think this fish is amazing And would look good in any ones aquarium likewise your fish amazing. Thank you
