75 gallon Malawi Tank

I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year! Anyways, my question is if this stocking will work or not. In my 75 gallon 4 foot tank(with a sick looking 3d background btw), there is
1 mloto likoma hap
1 electric lab
1 eureka Jake
1 tramitiochromis(sp?) Intermedius
1 mdoka peacock
1 deep water hap
1 red cap lethrinops
1 lemon jake
1 firefish
1 featherfin catfish
And all are males, but I don't know which the featherfin is.
I was planning on adding a couple more haps since these fish are from my old 60 gallon, which I upgraded to the 75. I was originally hoping for a frontosa or a venustus, but they're too big. I was thinking a red fin borleyi, a Taiwan reef, an electric blue ahli, or a red empress. Definitely not all of them though, maybe one or two. I was also planning on getting some females for the electric yellow, I read some threads that said a group of yellow labs could work well with male peacocks and haps. Is this a bad idea?

You definitely do not want to add just 1 fish to an established tank. add AT LEAST 2 and that is still risky.

I was planning to add 1 or 2 haps/peacocks and a group of electric lab females, if thats possible. If not, I would probably get 6 or so peacocks/haps to add to the current stock. I'll be sure to take some pictures tomorrow(its late and I don't want to turn the tank lights on)

You should definitely have plenty of room for 2 more peacocks and haps and maybe about 3 labs? I have 1 yellow lab male in my tank and he's fine.
