I was wondering what you could put in a tank with Demasonis. I really like their color, but everything I've read says they are very aggressive and should be kept in large numbers. I was just wondering what everyones experience with them are

yellow labs would be a good selection. both have bright color and would offer a nice contrast. the demasoni are mostly aggressive to their own species and the labs will grow bigger than them ensuring that they will be left alone. also crowding the tank will always lessen the aggression ecspecially with mbuna.

Do you have to keep them in large groups or can you just put a few in with other fish?
