Am I overstocked? My stock is in my signature below. I have 4 species in a 55 gallon. Might be too many. Opinions?

You're not overstocked, but Acei will outgrow that tank (13" isn't much room for a 6-7" fish to turn around) and you need more Maingano. 1m:7f is best. If you drop the Acei and bump your Maingano numbers (I'd add another 2+ females for your Afra, too), you'll be full.

I'd bump the acei (too big) and the Maingano (too aggressive). Both are ideal for a 75G or larger.

Then the concern with the remaining fish is the cobue might be too timid with the estherae in the tank to color up well.

Three species is a good number for a 55G.
