M. Auratis

Hi there,

so after a substantial amount of googling i found out that my pretty striped fish is actually an M. Auratis. And all i can find are horror stories that they're tank killers. I seem to have 3 males, one 4 inch-ish and two smaller ones although i'm not entirely sure if one of the smaller ones is an M. Auratis because it has dark blue almost purple stripes in stead of white. Does this now mean i'm stuck and can't get other mbuna's?

Get rid of them , they will even Kill each other when they fully mature, imo they shouldn't be allowed in the hobby :td:
