You can do a lovely all male hap/peacock tank with that nice big tank. I can't speak to the two mbuna you have, other than the lab. But you could do something like this:

Add 4 yellow labs (sex not important)
Add 5 p. Acei (sex not important)

Add a whole bunch of peacocks -- one to a species, being sure to pick out males that do not resemble each other. A possible stock list:

Red Empress
Taiwan Reef
Taiwan Reef albino
Otopharynx lithobates
Copadichromis mloto
Ruby/German Red OR Eureka Red (both probably not both)
Red Shoulder
Ngara Flametail
Yellow Jake
Sunshine

Plus 4-5 syndontis multipunctatus or petricola

You will probably need to remove one of your red peacocks as they will likely always spar with each other. I suspect you'll need to get rid of the female Cyp, but I'm not certain.

Good luck!

If you have synodontis, you won't have to worry about fry, in my experience. I've been working very hard to save the last remaining baby lab in my tank, who would have been long ago eaten if he didn't stay tucked in the fry pile I built for him . . .

I keep hoping that will happen, but the first "spit" was labs. I'll have to see if her second 'spit' is actually synos . . . but I'm not holding my breath. I don't think my guys are quite mature enough. Apparently they are late maturers . . . I would so love to get some little synos, though!
