I am getting ready to stock my 250g (72x30x27) tank and I wanted to get some opinions. Is 60-68 haps and 6 S. multipunctatus too many fish?

I'm new to Malawi Cichlids myself, have been keeping male peacocks & haps for about six months in my 180gal. Currently have seventeen 3.5"-4" of them in there and the tank is fairly full already for my tastes, don't think I'd want more than that. I just got a 450gal and have forty-four all male peacocks & haps arriving to me next week. I know people overcrowd to spread the aggression but I'm hoping the large sized 450gal will make the difference.

In a 72" tank I like 18 males or 25 mixed gender (5 species).
