just be careful you don't overlap girls. Salousi and labs share yellow females and cross breeding is a no-no. Same with mixing labs species. its a tricky puzzle to piece together but once done their beautiful! Do you have a picture of your setup?

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

i've been reading a lot of stuff about GBRs being sensitive and my personal experience they're not.

i've done the ff while the GBR was in my tank:
- aquascaping
- replaced the white sand with river sand(turning my tank into the Mississippi)
- often forgetting to do water changes
(yeah, not exactly proud of it)

...yet my pair is still happily ticking along. Dunno if they're wild-caught or anything, but they're certainly not "sensitive".

My "dream fish" now is a pair of apistogramma agasizii's. i hesitate because i don't have any room anymore.

You can also look into African dwarfs. Interesting shell-dwellers too.
