2 questions on african cichlids

I've stocked my 72 gallon with 13 cichlids and 2 synodontis all are 2 inch or so. 10 mbuna types so I think and 3 slightly larger peacocks. Only been a couple days but I'm concerned I may need more to control aggression? Do I? And also can anyone share what a juvie johanni looks like I got 2 but they look nothing like the pics I e found they're blue and sorta blotchy not striped. I can't get pics they're too fast! In a couple days ill add more if I can / should. Thanks!

Here's a couple pics of my juvenile M. Johannis! The darker one is def male. The one that is all yellow I do believe is female, and the one with the stripe on its top fin I do believe is male also because he gets dark like the other one. Sorry I didn't get a good pic of the might be male.

Well my for sure male is still a juvie and hasn't turned completely blue yet. Male M. Johannis all start out yellow then turn blue. There is a cichlid that looks like M. Johanni but are always blue. Can't remember the name! I think its manago, mainago, something lol. Oh and your welcome. Glad to be of some help. These lil guys I got are hard as heck to take pics of too. Fast little turds lol
