I think you should add a few more of each that you have and then pick another one to add in... would help more if i knew what you liked or what you are looking for exactly...

Here is a guideline article that may help you

Well for me i would do all mbuna only bc the females look just as good as the males well within reason obviously the males are prettier and show more color but peacock females are a dull brownish greyish greenish color.. lol

But its your tank if you want male peacocks i think you should do all male peacocks unless you are wanting females ..

Lol i should proof read before posting... ill go through an edit it if i still can... for anyone else that comes along

I definately think if you really prefer peacocks you should get them.. so another tank would be nice you could have the best if both worlds .... now to figure out what you want in the 55g

Interesting convo here. Am I nutty, or is there a couple run on sentences here describing male peacocks and whatnot? That tank does have some good potential though, looking good so far.
