If you are going with all Mbuna, they can all cross breed, but, I have a 75 gallon "community" tank with 4 Red Zebra, 5 Yellow Labs and 4 Kenyi, one male of each species and the rest females; they have yet to cross breed. My experience has been that they prefer to breed with their own species if possible, but, as I stated before, all Mbuna can cross breed. You could put a few male peacocks in with them as long as you don't put in any duplicates or look-a-likes; Labs are more tolerant, less aggressive than most other Mbuna.

I've kept C. moorii (Blue Dolphins) with Yellow Labs and I think the contrast is nice. At some point though, you will need to upgrade to a 75-90 gallon.

Let's see, my community tank has 4 different breeds
Taiwanee reef
Yellow labs
Blue acei
Ruby reds

Been like this for some time it's a nice color selection and no cross breeding.
