Those victorians are CARES species and endangered it would be wildly careless to mix them with anything!!! Some of these species are getting harder and harder to find in the wild and it is our responsibility as humans to take their fragile lives to heart while in our care. Mix breeding of anythnig is irresponsible, but when it is an endangered species it takes on a whole new meaning. I know I sound harsh and I'm not trying to be mean, but this is a very serious issue and one that needs to thought through with all the information available.

I disagree with witamygreatdanes. I mix my vics with mbuna in most of my tanks. Even with CARES fish you can do it properly.

If you pick species that do not resemble each other in regards to body shape, color and behavior and give a good sex ratio you will not have any hybrids.

The 3m/1f omnicaerulous will cause a bit of an issue. I do not see that female living more than 6 month even with good cover. there will be to much pressure to breed. also that could lead to them trying to breed with the ahlis. I would keep a pair of omnis in a tank with something non-cichlid related. The extra males could go into a show tank to save for a later date.

I think the greenwoodi would be ok with the haps. But keep an eye out on your sexes. More males and you will loose the females. I dont see a problem with cross breeding.

It's not really risky if you are carefull and know what you are doing. Some of the more aggressive vics tend to kill eachother off in a single species tank but do much better with a second species such as mbuna in the tank.

Hi N.omnicaruleus nor N.greenwoodi are not endangered nor threathened, this is an error to think so...the rocky fishes are doing well with the lates they are not in danger. The things changed on the lake, the Nile perch is disapearing and some species who were tthought to be extinct are coming back so...

What xris said.

Here's the IUCN page for Neochromis omnicaeruleus:
http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/60576/0

It's "Least Concern".

(Yes, the CARES list badly needs an update.)
