Just a quick update for those people with similar issues as mine.
I bought a few (6) giant danios, put them through quarantine, and then put them in with my mbuna. So far they have worked well as dither fish and haven't been snacked on yet.
Now, the mbuna aren't swimming in the top third of the tank but they are swimming the full length and around the middle. They no longer hide when I walk by the tank or come to the front of the tank.
I'm sure the danios will probably end up getting eaten as my mbuna get bigger, but for right now they are totally worth it. I have an active tank now and that's a huge step in the right direction.
