Its risky.

Having a "few" fronts can leave you ending up with 1. It just depends on the temperament of the dominant male.

Also, don't recommend putting them with the faster/more active mbuna/peacocks. They might have a hard time competing for food. You'll probably end up with underfed fronts, or overfed mbuna.

getting enough food is an issue.

frontosa eating smaller fish also an issue when the frontosa mature.

And you most likely will not get long traitor fin as your malawi most likely will nip those off.
