Can you describe or post a picture of the unidentified cichlids that will stay in the 75? That way no one will be sentencing any potential tank mates to death.

The stock looks good to me. One of the most common hybrids out there is M. estherae x L. caeruleus, so unless you see a spawn yourself I would not try to save any fry from either of those fish.

If you are adding a 2217 to an existing AC110 then you are also set for filtration.

As far as lighting, if you're not growing plants then what ever colour temperature looks good to your eye is fine. Mbuna could get along fine with nothing more than ambient room light - the lights are so you can see them! I'm not an expert on these things but I think 6500k is more of a plant-friendly bulb. 10k or 'colourmax' might work better. Go to an LFS and ask what temp they run on a set up you like.

Shaping up to be a nice tank!
