Cichlid setup fish

Hi, this is my first post so to start off I have a 200 litre(55 gallon tank which has been going for about 4 months with platies in it and I am going to put lake Malawi cichlids in there. The ph is 8 and all others are right as well. My lfs recommended for my tank electric yellows, aceis and cobalt blue zebras for the tank how much should I have in there.
Thanks

I'd skip the aceis or just do one of them as they get a bit bigger than most mbuna.

Thanks would you say a few cobalt blue zebras and a few electric yellows
Say 3-4 of each and skip the acei as I was also told there was a chance of them cross breeding with the colt zebra as well.
