25-30 depending on species. Having a high female to male ratio will help if you want to have a lot of specimens without a lot of aggression.

Interesting, I know most people suggest the above. But for me when I got to 12 it seemed pretty full. (mine is 75g)

Do most of you have a hiding spot for each of your fish? I notice that I have about 12 hiding spots and 12 fish so do most of you with 20-30 in a 75 have 30 hiding spots?

This should still be on topic :)

Same footprint as a 55G tank. The cookie cutters suggest 3 species for that footprint. If you choose average size (6" at maturity) mbuna that would be about 15 fish to give you an idea. But it really depends on which species you choose.

Might work. The next size up in 75G at 48" x 18" and cookie cutters for that footprint tend to recommend 4 species. So the 16" dimension is in between.
