Well the Yellow Labs are African Mbuna cichlids and will require completely different water parameters than either the Angels or Rams which are South American cichlids. The SA cichlids prefer softer water and the Africans prefer hard water.

I have both and enjoy the beauty of the SA and gracefulness of the Angels. My African Mbuna tank (with about 13 Yellow Labs) is my favorite because of the continuous action.

With the Mbuna it's better to have larger tanks as they need plenty of room. But then again Angels can get pretty big.

I would suggest minimum tank sizes of 55G for Mbuna like Yellow Labs. More for more aggressive fish.

The Angels I suggest a minimum of 35G, and 20G for the Rams.
