I sent my husband to store witha list of either one group or the other.. He came back with both.....
4 Labidochromis Caeruleus (Lions Cove) electric yellow
1 Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei" (Msuli)
4 Metriaclima callainos (cobalt blue zebra)
4 Pseudotropheus saulosi
4 Labidochromis sp. "Hongi"

It looks really good. I just added my tanks. Not sure how to load them to here[/img]

You could take back the labs and acei and get a couple more of the saulosi, cobalts, and hongi.

Generally, 55g are good for 3 species of mbuna with a 1m:3-5female, this changes depending on size of fish and aggression levels.

I would be more worried about the labs crossing with the saulosi females (and saulosi males crossing with lab females) than the 2 lab. species crossing.

I'd go 2m:5-6f saulosi, 1-2m:4-6f Hongi, 1m:4f callainos and call it a day. :thumb:

I've kept saulosi and Hongi together before, and while they're both blue(ish) with black vertical bars, I never saw aggression between them, for what it's worth.

It depends on the species, size of tank and the number of females available for them among other things. They will fight some but this can help remove some of the aggression from the females and other tankmates. You would just have to be ready to possible remove 1 if it starts to get beat up to badly.
I personally like Dielikemoviestars' proposed list. It should be an attractive and active setup! :thumb:

I would be a bit careful putting any placid types like YLs in with any vic males. My Vic tanks I recently took down were like war zones.
