I'd say the Bubblebee, because it will probably kill off the rest. The least aggressive will probably be the first to go.

unfortunately, he stole my pick for longest expected, I'm going to go with the peacock first, as the stress of living with those mbuna will eventually kill him.
All male tanks are a pain. I miss all the color, but I don't miss the hassle.

Yes technically but most people call peacocks peacocks or aulonocara and haps refer to something different. Like Placidochromis electra is a hap or haplochromis.
