i have currently cobalt zebras (3) Ob zebra (1) yellow lab (3), red zebra (3) rusty (1) yellow tail aeci (2) and (1) ob peacock.
all are juveniles to sub adult in a 65 gallon. They will be moved to my new acquired 55 gallon. However, i need the groups help on who should i keep, and what should add. i'm a fan of the cherry zebras and cobalt blue zebras. In addition, the yellow labs, tails, rustys. i possibly can split the group up in two tanks and leave some in the 65, but im leading to making the 65 gallon a chin-dingo saulis species tank. any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.

What is the length of the 65G? Is it a standard rectangle?

I would choose one zebra special per tank and have them in the 48" tank. Do not mix red zebras and yellow labs.

I'd rehome the acei as they are better in 48x18 or 75G.

As an example you could do this in the 55G 48" tank:
1m:4f Metriaclima callainos (cobalt)
1m:4f Labidochromis caeruleus (yellow labs)
1m:4f Iodotropheus sprengerae (rusties)

The only fish on your list that I would put in a tank less than 48" would be the yellow labs or the rusties (not both) with 1m:4f in the tank.

The 65 is standard rectangle, The 55 is 48x18. Ill leave the red zebras in the 65 and put the cobalts in the 55 along with my yellow labs and rusty, then go with your stocking suggestion. Thanks, I have places I can rehome if need be for the acei

How long is the 65G? If it is 36" then you don't want the red zebras in that tank.
