How many Cichlids?

I have a 75g with a fluval fx6 filter, for 400g (I over filter wayy too often). The tank is almost a year old and of course they are breeding and there are probably a total of 10-15 full grow, 20ish medium, and 15 or so 1-3"ers. That is probably an under estimate. I don't have aggression issues, and if I do they work themselves out being cichlids and all. Each size group has it's hierarchy. None are being picked on or fins being bit. They share the tank with 6 yoyo loaches and they leave each other alone. Along with Bristlenose and common plecos.

I'm just wondering how much is too much? I just moved and once the tank is stable I plan on selling quite a few to get prettier ones. Also so I will have less.

Thank you!

I think you could put a few small ones in there, as long as they can cope.
