    OK..I have a 55 african tank with:

    3- Yellow labs
    3- Aceis
    3- Socolofi
    3 -Rub red peacocks
    3- Tretocephalus (5 bar cichlid)

    I had 2 chocolate cichlids in there wich have since been rehoused in my 46 bow....all fish are about 1 1/2 inchs. Wanted to know if Im over stocked or if I could add more,either 1 more of each of the fish I already have or maybe 1-3 of a dffrnt fish? thank you

    You probably want to swap out the trets and increase the size of the other groups.

    Nice setup dude. What lighting are you running on that one? Want to build a tile backdrop for it?

    Probably 6 of each and get rid of extra males. You will be technically be overstocked, but if you over filter and keep up with water changes, you should be fine.
