Oddball for a malawi tank?

Postby Ben M » Sun May 05, 2013 9:48 am

Hi, I'm too busy to be selling fish on here ATM due to exams, so I've decided to move on the juvis I've got now to a shop for credit, and then strip a couple of females and start again, so when they are ready to sell my exams will be over. However, I'm not sure what to do with the credit. There's only one shop who will give me anything for them, so I'll have to take them there, but they don't really have any malawis in store. I'm thinking about getting maybe another type of catfish/bottom dweller to put on my 4ft tank with mbuna, a couple of peacocks, 3 synos and 5 BNs. I'm not really sure what they have in store, but my mate works there, so I'm going to ask him. But in the meantime, are there any suitable fish that I could get?

Can you not ask them to order you something in? Don't see why you can not stick them on for sale on gumtree or the likes locally, they should shift.quick enough I would of thought?

I suppose I could ask them to order something in, but I prefer to get my malawis from Tony, and I'm not sure what oddballs I could ask them to order.

I'm really busy with my AS exams ATM, so I'd rather just get rid of these all at once and not have to bother with people coming down to pick them up.

I've asked the one near me, and they said they won't give credit. It's annoying that the same company has different policies in different areas.

Isn't there really much else other than the BNs and synos that you can keep in a malawi tank?

If that's the case I may just buy some food and then buy a few more cichlids from Brid at a later date, now that my dom male lab has stopped being a serial killer.

No there isn't. Non rift lake fish would not live well.

I love the Botias (YoYo) myself. Weird and lively.

Yeah, they do seem quite nice little fish, but I don't know if I'd put them in with the malawis. I think I'll just get some food or something with the credit, and then buy a few more mbuna, or keep some of the fry and put them back in the main tank. I've got a really nice looking Pseudotropheus elongatus mpanga juvi ATM with perfect barring that I really like.

Tony and Clare keep the Botias - its where I found out they'd be ok. I have 6 running around with my Malawis - great hoovers.
