I assume you are going for all-male and therefore I'd say better to remove the multiples of any species. And these big and/or aggressive fish are better in a larger-than-55G tank:
Bumblebee (Crabro)
Acei (might work though)

Not sure how the borleyi and peacock will work in an all-male tank with mbuna...let us know periodically. Success can be judged at about the two-year anniversary.
