Corner tank and mbuna?

So I picked up a leaky 56g corner tank 27"x27"x42"(curve) for a killer deal, resealed it and am wondering what to do with it. I was curious what people's thoughts were on mbuna, being that it isn't a "4 foot tank", being stocked in this corner tank. I was thinking a boat load of rock work and 2 groups of 1m 3f of some "dwarf" mbuna. LFS has a very wide variety of mbuna available.
So what do you all think of a corner tank for mbuna or does this need to be a longer tank. Thank.

Pics of the stand I framed out, trying to fine 1/8" ply to laminate a curved front but that is proving hard to find in the size I want around here.
