Stock by length...not gallons. Buy fish now for the tank you have, not the future tank.

Two major decisions:
Mixed-gender or all-male. Mixed gender is easier if you are new to Africans.
Mbuna or peacocks and haps. IMO mbuna are easier and more colorful in a mixed gender tank.

OK haps and peacocks, only males are colorful. Three colorful fish in a 48" tank.

Don't get me wrong...I do recommend the mixed gender haps and peacocks...see my signature. But full disclosure.
