The socolofi could be causing the haps and peacocks to show poor colors. And if he was rejected in the mbuna tank...something caused that as well. Socolofi and cobalts are look alikes, so even with mixed gender mbuna, you go for different appearances.
In a 75G with mixed gender mbuna, think in terms of 4 species with 1m:4f of each. Sounds like you may have too many species and not enough of each to diffuse aggression? Maybe choose one Metriaclima species and if you choose cobalts, omit the socolofi?
