The first tank looks fine. You may have cross breeding issues in the second tank. The male Nimbo's in particular could be looking to spawn with any of the other females, given they don't have females to pay attention to. When you mix oddball males, and breeding groups, in order to insure that you don't have crossbreeding, the breeding groups need to be larger more dominant species.

Given your desires, I would dump one of the Nimbo species, and get females for the one you choose to keep. I would recommend at least three females for the Fossochromis and Nimbochromis.
