New fish keep being killed.

Hi all I recently upgraded to a 4ft 63 gal tank. The tank currently houses one frontosa, one demasoni, one lab hongi, one firefish, one ruben red, one aulonocara stuartgranti, one albino greshakei and one albino lab. I m really partial to keeping aulonocaras but everytime I introduce one all the current occupants chase it till it dies, usually within 24 hours. How can I stop this so I can get my levels up.

When adding to an established cichlid tank u should add atleast 3-4 at a time so they can't focus all there aggression on one fish

Ok. Is that 3 - 4 of the same fish or does it not matter. For example if I wanted to add a yellow lab would I have to add 4 labs or could i put one lab in then three completely different fish.
