75 gallon compatability question

I really want a deep blue color. I've read about demasoni, it's just that most people say I should have them at a minimum of 12.

If that would be the case, can I add one more specie in a 75 gal?
Lab x 5
Acei x 5
Demasoni x 12
One more x ??


That would be pretty well stocked, but you could totally add a few more. 20-25 is a good number. I suggest:

Cynotilapia Afra, (there's a few different types, all good) or Labidochromis hongi

Gorgeous fish!

75 gallon compatability question

Albino Socolofi is another one of my favorites. I have one, very fun to watch.

There's SO MANY! Lol. Good luck.
I love Demasoni, they are a blast to watch also. I tried keeping a big group of them, but they picked on some of my larger guys, who were to slow to do anything about it, so I got rid of them.

If you like Johanni's I would get their less aggressive cousin the maingano. Looks exactly the same, less attitude.

Are you doing regular Socolofi or albinos (snow whites)?

Looks good! That will be a fun set up.
