I'm setting up a 90 gallon and want a prolific tank that's friendly as well.

I've already decided on a group of 4 aulon. jake eurekas, 5 psuedo. saulosi, 5 cyno. afra (cobue), and 5 psuedo. acei. My ratios are set up with one male. I will have white sand with smooth black rocks and some vals and j. fern.

I want to add one or two more species to the mix that won't stress my peacocks out toooo much. I know the polit can be aggressive but have been hearing kind words lately :)

Just want to get an idea of what other's like, in color, behavior, ect.

I'd say you are already stocked with 4 species in a 90G.

I would swap the Afra for the maingano. Cobue females are pretty drab just like peacocks and you may end up with a few to many dull fish in the one tank. Besides that they may not get along with the saulosi.
I would add the maingano and call it stocked, considering that both the Acei and Jakes will grow beyond 5" as will the Maingano eventually

I'd go with the labs, as well, just to balance out the blues.
