Thinking about demasonis

Hi everyone! Sorry for asking and posting so much
I'm just really excited to start my own cichlid tank
Now, I think demasoni are fantastic fish. And I want to add them to my 75 gal tank. (48x18x22)

I think I would stock with:

P. demasoni x 12
L. caeruleus x 5
P. acei x 5
(one more specie) x ???

Would this be alright? Also, can I add one more specie? If so, what would be good, and in what numbers?

Thank you so much

It may work, it may not.

The demasoni are significantly more aggressive than acei and caeruleus. I have ket them together in the past successfully with appropriate size groups but I have also seen it not work out.

Would have to agree and say the demasoni would be too aggressive. I know there can be exceptions but generally speaking these are one of the more aggressive malawi cichlid species.

Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.
