The demasoni need to be kept in groups of 10 or more to spread the aggression around, 3 will quickly become 1. Saulosi are easier to get along with.

if no females are present they would be fairly less aggressive as they feel less mating competetiveness. but the cichlids you like are hard to decipher genders, i.e the zebras, saulosi, labs, demasoni are difficult - not sure about cobues. soooo maybe u need to cut out a couple of species and aim for some male to female ratio?
