I'm thinking Msobo and Hara in my 75 gallon tank.
If I just stick with those two species what should I shoot for in terms of numbers?
If I go with a third species which would be compatible and make for a nice color contrast?

For 2 species 1m:9f of each.

For three species, maybe Maingano 1m:7f and then 1m:5f for the Msobo and Hara.

Another alternative could be white labs. Rusties.

Or 18.

Or if that seems too much, you could get 8 unsexed juveniles and try to spawn the rest of the females. Have an extra tank or two to raise fry.

I would probably do the 18. Sometimes even with 2X the final number of females, I don't get enough.
