would it be fine if i had one male and 14 females in my 77 gallon. My 2 subdominant males in my tank are getting black bars and blackening faces and are quite ugly looking. My dominant male is a beauty though.

Yes it would be fine. You must be the one other person on the planet beside me that has problems with multiple male labs in one tank.

I had the same problem with my previous group of labs. After all, they are mbuna. I had 3 males in 1 tank & the 2 sub-doms would show slight barring/darkening faces from being stressed, it does occur in the wild; but isn;t considered a desirable trait . I separated them & the barring/dark face cleared.
