4' compared to 6' tank

I have 3 acei and I know they like to swim around and need a 6' tank. Well I'm currently in the process of upgrading from my 4' 55 to a 4' 150 gallon. Is that gonna be okay for them? I can always trade them with the breeder I go to if need be

The 6 foot is idea for the Acei swimming needs as well as more area for your fish to claim territory. The gallon size is important, but IMO the foot print is even moreso if you want to add more species.

That's great for larger Mbuna that stick to the rocks but for hyper active fish like Acei or Haps it's still to short IMO.
