Hi all, after a few years of no fish due to many moves, I finally get to assemble my dream male Cichlid tank. Below is my list, let me know if you see any major red flags. Tank will be a 48" 75 gallon:

1x Aulonocara Stuartgranti Maleri
1x Aulonocara maulana
1x Aulonocara jacobfreibergi (Eureka red)
1x Aulonocara salousi
1x Aulonocara sp. Dragonblood
1x Protomelas Steveni Taiwan
1x Copadichromis Azures Mbenjii
1x Tramitichromis intermedius
1x OB Borleyi
1x Placidochromis Electra
1x Placidochromis johnstoni
1x Sciaenochromis Fryeri (Albino White Knight)
4x Labidochromis caeruleus
4x Synodontis Nigrita
1x Longfin Albino Bristlenose Pleco

That's 21 fish including a synodonits group and a pleco. All will be added young. Overdoing it or ok? Thanks so much!

I like 12 in an all-male tank when your length is 48". I would omit look-alikes and fish that are too large for a 48" tank:
--eureka red and dragonblood are both red for example
--Borleyi, Taiwan reef, Johnstoni as examples of fish that mature > 6".

Thank you for your response. Are you meaning 12 total, including catfish? I will probably end up going to a 90 gallon, not that it makes much of a difference.

12 cichlids. A 90G is the same length. If doing all male in a 72" tank I like 18 male cichlids that mature <= 6".
