My 90g is in the process of getting setup and have the fish list that i want.

4 Aulonocara jacobfreibergi Eureka 1M/3F
5 Psuedotropheus sp. Acei (Msuli) 1-2M/3-4F
6 Psuedotropheus saulosi 2M/4F
6 Iodotropheus sprengerae 2M/4F
6 Cynotilapia afra (Cobue) 2M/4F
2 Bristlenose Plecos
2 Clown Loaches

My question is, would adding a quad group of these tropheops be ok or will the tank be overcrowded? I read the species article and it was recommended to keep with any mbuna.
If I had to I could reduce the mbuna numbers to 5 with only one male and the rest females.

I was never planning on ever keeping this genus but read about them in the profiles and looked pretty interesting. And I really am not LOOKING for them, but if i did come accross some maybe I'd pick em up.

Is this a good idea or should i stick with what i have???

What are the dimensions of this 90 gallon?

I've successfully kept saulosi and cobue together. They really didn't pay much attention to each other in my 6ft 125 gallon.

Yeah I was thinking the females are very different so they couldn't really tussel over them.
The dimensions are 48"l X 18"w X 24"h.
Just the standard 90
