I like 5 species in a 72" tank so 6 species in a 84" tank seems about right.

This would be for mixed gender with 1m:4f of each...depending on species.

When you choose the species, the total species and the m:f ratio could change.

I did not really notice different behavior from my mbuna whether stocked in a 72" tank or a 48" tank.

Unless they are a must, many would advise you avoid very aggressive fish like auratus.
