    Every year I put out different fish in my300gal pond. I put in trios of pelvic taeniatus , silviae and lucausi this year . I and found the male silviae dead.Do you think the other males might breed with them and produce hybrids? I empty the pond in mid October and don’t know what comes out till then

    I doubt it since Enigmatochromis lucanusi is not that closely related to the other two species and Pv. silviae belongs to a different species-group than Pv. taeniatus. That being said, you never know - "any port in a storm".
