I'm upgrading one of my 55g tanks to a 150g (72x18x24). I'm planning on an all male tank. My planned stocking list is below. I was wondering if there are any major problems with the list below or are there other cichlids I should add to the mix which would be a better fit. I've tried to vary colors and stay on the less aggressive side and with fish that have a similar diet. I'm planning on a pool filter substrate with lace rock. For filtration, I will have 2 Emperor 400 filters which came with the tank and a Rena XP2 cannister that I'm bringing over from my 55g.

Auloncara "Yellow Collar"
Auloncara gertrudae
Auloncara jacobfreibergi "Ã-tter Point"
Auloncara Baenschi
Auloncara Struartgranti "Flavescent"
Othopharnx Blue Otter
Protomelas Spilonotus Tanzania Liui
Protomelas Spilonotus Likoma
Tramitichromis Intermedius
Cytocara Moorii (has to be in mix since already have in 55g)
Placidichromis Phenochilus (has to be in mix since already have in 55g)
Lethrinops "Mbasi Creek"
Copadichromis Borelyi (Kadango) or Yellow Fin
Copadichromis "Midnight Mloto"
Frontosa Burundi (I know not the best choice, but I was given the fish by someone who did not want it.)
Syndonis catfish
bristlenose pleco

Thanks in advance for your feedback

Some LFS's and breeders in the area have both the blue otter and likoma,so I should be able to get one. It's one of the advantages of living in a big city like Philly.

I was afraid the Lethrinops might be hard to find. One of the lFS in our area will sometimes be able to order the hard ones like the Lethrinops, but it's not a make or break if I can't get that one. Is there a Lethrinops with similar color which is more readily available?

Great advice. I always worry what you buy may not be what you end up getting especially when you are buying juves. You would hate to find out a year down the road that I have something that is not what I wanted.

Thanks for your feedback, Joea
