In a 55G with demasoni and yellow labs I would want to end up with 12 demasoni 3m:9f and a trio of labs. You might be OK with 7 labs in the 36" tank although usually I would say ideally 5.

Labs are sometimes OK with bad ratios, and sometimes not. You could just put 3 in there and swap out anyone who becomes a problem.

With demasoni, plan on having to tear the tank down fairly often (remove all decor) either to remove extra males or catch sick fish. They can be delicate healthwise. You think labs are hard to find him/her??? (y)
