I want to create a show tank around severums. Tank is approx 72x24x32. It may be a little wider at the bow, but it is definitely very tall. I have mostly kept Africans in the past, so any input on the stocking is appreciated.

How many severums could I reasonably fit without too much aggression? 4-5? What will happen if they pair off? I'm not interested in keeping/raising fry.

Other possible tankmates (not all of them, just my favorites):
1 chocolate cichlid
1-2 pairs of rainbow cichlids
1 pair of blue acaras
1 pair of Nics
Group of eartheaters
School (~10) cory catfish
Some kind of dither
Bristlenose pleco(s)
