I have peacocks with mbuna and have little to no problems. They show territory the same way and both respect each other. I have some yellow labs, german reds and a venistus in the same tank. So in other words, a mbuna a peacock, and a hap. They chase each other around as they normally would. Some believe you should only keep fish with fish from there same area, which they are, but rarely come in contact with one another. IMO
, you should be fine. Just remember to overstock, over filter. And do regular water changes greater than or equal to 50% a week. As for fish, make sure to have between 10 and 20 fish. My rule for filtration on my 55 gallon, is to cycle the tank 10 times an hour. I have a 400 gph
filter, and am purchasing a 350 gph
filstar canister. So my tank will cycle at 15 times an hour. My water is a bit cloudy now, but when that new filter comes in, I should be great.
As for mbunas to add, you could do yellow labs, zebras, really anything thats not extremely aggressive. Heres my tank.
