I recently finished my 900lt tank, its a 200x50x90cm.

This is the current stocklist:

Metriaclima Estherea
Metriaclime Fainzilberi
Melanochromis Auratus
Labeotropheus Trewase Thumbi West
Tropheops Chilumba

All in the ratio of 2m and 3f

I'm also thinking of putting a P. msobo magunga. What do you think?

Your tank is 78" by 18" which is 6" longer than mine. I'd stick with the existing number of species, remove the extra males so you only have one of each and double the females. For the Auratus, I would triple the females.

Has your mix been together for more than a year?

Remove the males i think will be quite a hard task to do if not impossible due to the size of the acquarium and the rockwork.

All the cichlids are between 4-5 cm. I try to get some more females of each species.

I stick with 5 species or I can add 1 more?
