What size tank? Hopefully a 100-125 at least. Generally, I think the Fronts will be stressed by the Tropheus, and having that many different species may lead to aggression/bloat, and hybrids. The rule of thumb is one group for each 60-75 gallons. If you have a 125, I'd recommend adding some Gobies and losing the Fronts, the 2 Duboisi and the Cherry Spot.

Hey thanks for your reply, the tank is a 90 gallon with hardly any rock, sand substrate. fronts are doing well they will come out if anything gets aggressive. Okay thanks for your input. And any tips on how i can get them to start breeding? Thanks.
