Welcome to Cichlid-forum!

#2 does not exist...does that change your mind about mbuna? Or any African cichlid?

PM sent.

You can do 4 species with 1m:4f of each if you choose compatible species. Here is an example:

1m:4f Labidochromis caeruleus yellow labs
1m:4f Pseudotropheus acei
1m:4f Iodotropheus sprengerae rusties
1m:4f Cynotilapia zebroides Cobue

If you let the moms spit in the tank and stock 5 Synodontis multipunctatus you will rarely see any fry.

You don't want less than 20 cichlids in a 75G to manage aggression. And minimum 4 females per group. The 5 synodontis do not count toward overstocking or managing cichlid aggression. Mine are between six and eight inches and some of them are 15 years old.

If you get the synos and let the moms spit in the tank, you should not have a fry problem. If you want to breed, you need extra tanks for raising fry of different sizes.
