At nswcs meeting they recommend to use haps. The Acei was one which alot of people used with success, they explained due to its small eggs and big mouth you gain better fry rates than other cichlids. There was also the idea of trying some Victorian cichlids which breed like rabbits

you would find that having more females will be better in the long run, Fish do get smart to what is happening and they will stop breeding if the Cuckoo's are constantly harassing them.

Acei, are supposedly a good fish (I never used them),but the Red Empress would also work as well. Just remember only one is a Hap!
