Gender relations are not at all kinds optimal, but the animals have grown up together from a young age with me, so that a firm has established Rangordung. Serious problems there with the constellation not. Even after assembly of the groups in the new pool, it has not yet come to serious frictions. The "Red Ruby" are still adolescent (April 2009). In the pool no juveniles come through, so that the socialization of Aulonocara represents no problems. Both Aulonocara species I have in my basement pool (separately!) Still breeding animals.
