mbuna stocking part II

Hi everyone!
I'm really new to cichlid keeping, and would really welcome any opinion and advice
I have a 4ft 75 gal. And is planning to stock it with mbunas.
I really want a blue-yellow tank.
I'm planning to get 5 each. Would this combination be allright?

Labidochromis caureleus
Pseudotropheus acei
Pseudotropheus socolofi
Cynotilapia afra "Cobue"

Also, which specie should I add first? then next? then third? then last?
Thank you very much

Personally, I would add the caereleus first. Wait for the tank to be cycled, then add the rest all at once.

They're all pretty peaceful Mbuna, the Socolofi probably being the least peaceful.
It really doesn't make a difference which order you add these in.

I think it'd be a good idea to add one species at a time in a large group (5 labs, 5 acei... ect)
