Wanting o start a Frontosa tank

I have a 90 gallon tank and I am wanting to put nothing but frontosa's (Hope that I am spelling that right) in it. I am wandering how many would be a good number for that tank. I know the 1inch of fish per 10 gallons but if that was true Id have to get rid of about have of my africans. But if someone could give me a little ideal it would be great. To tell you a little about the tank if it helps it has a sump filter and it measures 18x24x48. I had a oscar in it but decided to get rid of him because he wouldnt let anything else in the tank. Hope someone can help.

the guidline is actually 1" per gallon. Also as some others have mentioned, try not to exceed 3/4 of the width of your tank (13") fish length.
