Picking up 20 to 25 African cichlids where to put?

Hi. In about week and half Iím going to be picking up about 20 or 25 cichlids about 2 inch to 4 inches. I have a 80 gallon grow out tank and a 50 gal and a 40. How should I stock them. I know you canít add all at once to one tank. Thanks

I'd put all of them in the 80g. Watch them closely as you go. Remove any overly aggressive one's to another tank.
