I have 9 yellow labs younger half grown and OB peacocks 2 maybe 6 total same age and i was wondering if the two species could coexist in a 75 gal tank ? also i do not want the two to crossbreed so what do you think of this arrangment of my expectations >W want to do whats best for my Cichlids ?

It should be a good mix, while cross breeding is always possible, I think the 2 species you have shouldn't be much of a problem. The labs may tolerate multiple males, you'll probably have to narrow down the peacocks to one male and the rest females.

My OB Peacock is in a mixed Malawi tank. He has shown signs of aggression at times, but then I added a Venustus to the mix and he then became just one of the gang. I have found that keeping more fish than you would normally expect to keep in a tank keeps aggression at a lower level
