Avoiding fish that closely resemble one another is the most important thing about an all-male set up. There's a few here and there that have some resemblance, but in such a large tank, I don't foresee any real problems.

I think the biggest problem you're going to have is finding some of the fish on your list. Some of them just aren't readily available or available at all.

Placidochromis sp. "blue otter" - I've searched for these for years... never found one.
Protomelas spilonotus (Likoma) - same as above.
Lethrinops sp. "mbasi creek" - very uncommon.

I'd be very interested to hear if you have a lead on these already or if you find them.

If you can get some pictures of the fish and post them, I'd like to see them. I've come across a few so-called "blue otters" that were not. I think Ad had a WC group some time ago, but other than that, I've never heard of anyone else having any.

The P. spilonotus is common, but the Likoma variety is extremely uncommon, make sure that's what they are before you buy.

Lethrinops variants are often dependent on the location. They're not as common up here, but seem to be more readily available in the US.
