I was just looking up the bumblebee and thought he might too big... Here is what I looking at... Let me get some opinions.. Labidochromis caeruleus, Steveni Taiwan, maingano, Pseudotropheus acei, SRT hongi, Aulonocara stuartgranti, julies... Anything in this group a bad idea?

Peacocks and haps will get to big for a 40b! I had a hongi male that was 6"! The labs and acei and julies and mainganos usafishbox should be ok!

Thank you very much BFinley!! One last question. After the tank has cycled am I better to get them all at once? I have a local store I want to get some at, but they may not have all I want, and if they dont have them, I will order them online.

You can start with a few,but when you go to add more then put like 5 or so at one time! Might want to rearrange the the tank so the fish that are already in there won't pick on the new fish! usafishbox

I only have my pair of buffalo heads in my 40b. But I have had all kinds of stuff in there. Manganos would be cool in there

Yep that's what I do! I never had a problem doing it that way! Depending on your filtration it doesn't take long to clear! You still have to let it cycle though! usafishbox
