You won't find L. textilis anywhere. A very close looking fish is Melanochromis joanjohnsonae (spelling?). Males get blue like socolofi, females keep the plaid pattern. They're nasty buggers but should be fine in that tank (acei might get bullied a little, but they already will with that mix, eventually).

Saulosi females usually aren't orange. At least not in my experience.

Get at least 4 more female red zebras OR 1-2 more and remove 1 male. Get 4 more acei (at least) so they feel safe and can school.

You can still get quite a few more fish in there (probably 20-25 mbuna total and 5-6 haps).
