So I have a 55 gallon tank cycling now. I'd like anywhere between 15-20 Mbuna. So 3 or 4 species of 1m to 4f.

I'm torn between Snow Whites, Hongis, Red Zebra OBs, Rusty's and Cyno Hara.

Your thought on the amount of fish and your preference of fish?

I also have an acuaclear 110 and a 306 canister filter and lots and lots of rocks/hiding spaces!

Thank you!

I don't have advice on what fish to go with other than I find my rusties the most boring in the tank. Mine are young (5 months) but they are kind of drab.

In a 55G I would not exceed 3 species and 15 fish. From your list I'd choose:
1m:4f hara
1m:4f snow white (Socolofi albino)
1m:4f red zebra OB

Hongi females are drab...hara females are colored and the males are stunning.
