Hecqui or Kungweensis or Both

So I transferred my shellies (3 Brevis Sunspot and 3 Pseudotropheus Lanisticola) from a 29-gallon tank to a 60-gallon.

And of course I want to add more fish to the mix.

I was debating what else to get. Hecqui or Kungweensis? Could I possibly add three Hecqui and three Kungweensis to the 60 and not expect trouble? Or should I opt for just one group of three?

The Brevis and the Lanisticola get along great. I never had a problem with them in the 29. They both seem to be very mellow for me.

The only other occupant I have in the tank is a small convict cichlid.

So, any suggestions?

First thing, the Kungweensis are critically endangered :( Where are you getting them from? I would like some :thumb: :wink:

Honestly, I wouldn't add any more shellies. Something for the upper areas of the tank would be better. Cyprichromis would make a very nice addition.
I know they are around... infact I actually saw some wilds on a list not too long ago !

I was more trying to point out that it might be better to stay clear of that species unless you plan on breeding them.
