Can this work?
If it can what type of fish and tank size do I need for a pair of yellow labs?

My girlfriend had her Electric Yellow in with some Tiger barbs and other fish when she first got him. He killed everything else in the tank so I wouldn't recommend them for a community tank unless it was with other Cichlids. We now have him in a tank with 4 other Electric Yellows and lots of rocks and they get along okay.

Yellow's may be the tamest of the rift cichlids, but that doesn't mean that they belong in with a community tank. I think I remeber someone saying they kept yellow's in a community. It would be an execption not a rule. Espically, with only one in the tank. Peferred water parameter wouldn't hlep the situation either. I suggest keeping them in dedicated cichlid tanks or in a species tank.

I have my yellow labs with blue Pseu. Socolofi. The blue and yellow look beautiful together. So far a pair of the labs have produced about 10 babies, in a 55G tank, upgrading to 180G now.
