New 55 gallon african cichlid tank!

Just set up my new 55 gallon mixed African Malawi cichlid tank
I have
6 electric yellows
1 hongi
1 ruby red peacock
1 dragons blood peacock
1 female albino red zebra
1 male OB
1 (think its a red top afra)

What do you guys think about stock list?
Can I add anymore and what types would you suggest?

I'm running two aquaclear 110 filters and a submersible filter.

I just have 2 24" lights for the top but the bulbs are an ugly yellow color and don't make the fish pop.
What type of bulbs should I buy??

What do you guys think so far?

I'd say no more fish. Nice tank by the way.

Need a new tank dedicated to cichlids. My current 55 isn't setup for mbuna.
