Stocking my 55G list

Okay later today I'm going my lfs. I'm getting some stuff and fish for my finally cycled 55G!

4 electric yellow labs (African cichlid)

Common pleco (I know he is too big for we'll not yet but getting bigger tank.

Mystery snail

Too full? Hopeful getting 150G from brother-in-law that he doesn't use. For pleco that is. Just want some yellow labs in there and common is about 7 inches in my 29G (stole from brothers 20G.

That's not too full at all. You have lots of room for more fish.

You have lots of room maybe, but I think you can't put anything else in there with the yellow labs besides other ARLC. Not a cichlid expert, sorry

If you want other fish with labs, they have to be other cichlids. But I'm not a cichlids expert either.

I heard aggressive fish usually do not go well with mystery snails. Occasionally my kribensis knocks over my snails when they are climbing on tanks, ornaments.

But it is not impossible to mix them together, you would just need to watch their behaviors to decide what you should do.
