Once my water quality is perfect I am looking at 3-4cm juveniles
Due to u.k lockdown on retail shops and travel I do not have the immediate access for rehoming what age size does this start to be something you need I can easily set up 1 or 2 hospital tanks but if this is something that starts from day 1 I will delay my purchase
How long Will 3-4cm juveniles typically co exist without issue

Mbuna fry will clash from one day being released from the mouth. Whether that will become an issue, is a number of factors. Species, which you've listed, and tank size are important... what are the dimensions of your aquarium?

I know it will become an issue eventually I just wondered what the typical time period is before you start rehoming juveniles
If I had 3/4cm un sexed will I be needing to remove some in days or weeks or months how
Shops here are shut for a few weeks so I want to weigh up if I should delay my stocking

You've got a decent sized tank, so I would suggest that in all probabilities, you will be good for months, with fish that size as a starting point.

The aggression really becomes more violent when Mbuna are fully sexually mature, which would be like 6-8 cm. You always have fish fighting for pecking order but it is more "play" when they kids, much more serious when they are breeding. Also a males sense of territory grows as they grow bigger. Fish also vary in personality, some are more live and let live, while some males are just violent jerks.
