You're already looking @ carnage - mbuna aren't pairing fish (they need a ratio of at least 1m:4f), and Kenyi will destroy everything in that tank when they mature.

The blue ones are Ps. socolofi. The black ones are probably Lab. "Hongi" All of your fish will be okay in that tank except the aforementioned Kenyi, but you'll really want to bump those ratios up. Once you have 1m:4+f for each, you'll be fully stocked and should have a successful tank.

Yes, 5 of each for 20 total will work. The labs you'll have a hard time sexing. Hongi males will color up, females will stay drab, so that will be easy. RZ males turn more pink, while females retain that bright orange color. Socolofi can be a little tough, but usually males will start "acting like males" soon enough. ;)
