Using the diagonal will not work unless you find the diagonal of a 48x12 and use that as your guideline.

It is a 36" tank...stock accordingly. Demasoni or Saulosi.

Yes and yes. Among the Malawi. If you want more than 5 fish.

If you are good with a single species tank and 1m:4f of another species, you could choose Labidochromis caeruleus, Cynotilapia zebroides Cobue or some people have success with Iodotropheus sprengerae in a 36" tank.

Malawi will chase for 36" before giving up so the 48" tank (with a full 12x12 area of refuge) works better for a territorial fish like this.
