Can I set up an overstocked (20-25 fish) 75 gallon mbuna tank if I run an FX6 filter? I plan on overstocking to diffuse the aggression and don't plan on using rocks for hiding. Keep in mind all fish will be 4" or smaller.

Also, I plan on using a denitrator pouch or two in the filter. Will this affect the pH, KH, GH and cichlid salt dissolved in the water?

I would choose something other than mbuna if you prefer to avoid rocks. 20 mbuna in a 75G are fine with lots of rocks.

For filtration shoot for 8X to 10X GPH turnover. No idea about the denitrator, I have never needed one.
