50 Gallon African Cichlid Tank?

I am looking at getting a 50 gallon african cichlid tank. I currently have a 37 gallon tank and I want to expand my tank. How many african cichlids could I put in a 50 gallon tank?

Bit of a mute question, im sure theres a ballpark figure, but its all species dependent etc.
I CAN tell you that you can fit more in a 55 though than your 37
I'd go as far to say it would be 50% more fish

If memory serves, a mated pair or a group of 4 or 5, a male and some females. This may vary a bit depending on which ones you are thinking about, (dwarf versions, really aggresive ones etc), there are quite a few.
