Mbuna Aquarium

Hi I have an aquarium. These are the dimentiona

Length 15 inches
Height 15 inches
Width 10inch

It’s quite a tall tank but it’s around 10 gallons

I currently have one yellow lab Mbuna living inside and I was thinking to get two more
Would that be okay?

Also Wikipedia said in 10 gallons you can have 1-4 fish (species only) is that incorrect. Someone help.

Ime the problem with cichlids is they don't like others around them. They like their space. The footprint of your tank is really a 5 gallon. Putting 3 mbuna, even more chill ones like yellow labs, will be pushing it because of floor space. You can try it. Likely they'll all wind up with fin damage, etc.
