I read that I should stock the cichlid tank full so that they can't establish territories, and that the rule of one inch of fish per gallon doesn't apply. I'm doing my research first. I'm not gonna just throw any cichlid in with him. It's gonna have to be a gang of them because he's mean.

Your going to have to find fish somewhere besides the lfs.

Overstocking can work to cut down aggression. But overstocking requires extra filtration. Your also going to need a bigger tank to add more Africans. Most say a 55 gallon is the minimum. Bumblebees can be very aggressive so be prepared for that.
