I'm curious to find out if there are anyone keeping Simochromis with their tropheus or if anyone has ever housed these two species together.

That is an excellent question http://trophs.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif http://trophs.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif

The combination Tropheus/Simochromis is quite common in Europe and I would love to find some of these guys. http://trophs.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/drool.gif http://trophs.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/drool.gif http://trophs.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/drool.gif

I've read that they are so much more aggressive than tropheus.....
