I am interested in breeding these fish and would like for someone to share their experience breeding. How many in breeding group? Size of tank and number of fish; water and temperature requirements. Is it Ok to mix other fish when breeding? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I breed with a ratio of one male to 12 females and use 4 males and 50 females in a vat. Vat size is 15 ft by 30 ft and 15 inches deep. Each corner hs a cave made from bricks. Water is hard and high in PH.

I have a 1M/6F ratio in a mixed Mbuna tank (150g) they breed constantly. I don't do anything special with my tap water at 7.6ph except chlorinate it. Temp is at 78-80. HTH

Thank you for the replies. HTH - this question is for you. How many fishes are there in your 150 gal Mbuna tank? What other fishes or how many tank mates are there? Do you have a substrate, rocks, caves etc... What is your set up like? Appreciate your response.

Just an update. I did successfully bred these fish 3 months after I made this post. I had 2 males and 6 females in a 75 gal tank. The dominant male did breed with one of the females and I got 37 fries out of her. These maisoni reef are really beautiful fish. So thank you for all the persons who gave me their input. BTW, all fries are all out.
