4 Labidochromis caeruleus (Lion's Cove I)
4 Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei" (Msuli)
4 Metriaclima estherae (Red)
2 Dwarf Petricola (Synodontis lucipinnis)

Would this work for a 55 gallon tank. Has a 350 peguin biowheel and a cascade 1000 canister filter. aqadvisor says its stocked to 124 percent with 157 percent filteration. I would like to add a 3rd dwarf petricolo if i can for fry control.

I would dump the Metriaclima estherae, they'll hybridize with the Labs, and are the most aggressive species in the group. My personal thoughts would be to go with a blue barred fish, such as a Cynotilapia afra Hara white top. Final stocking numbers of four per each, one male, three females is good, but you may need more to start, to achieve those numbers.

And the lucipinnis like to be in larger groups so I would go with 5 of them.
