Hello everyone

I just bought a blue ahli cichlid and i was planning on buying a bigger tank and getting some tank mates for him within the next few weeks but im not too good at figuring out what fish are compatible so i need some help!
So this is what i want to do.. i want one kind of each fish if i can :P either all males or all females w/e will be better
1 dolphin cichlid
1 yellow lab
1 blue ahli
1 blue peacock
1 powder blue socolofi

any and all advice will be appreciated

I would worry about the lab and dolphin. As for the rest I believe it would be a free for all .In my humble opinion ,a large tank would be mandatory.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

If it's one of each species then gender won't matter- the reason one gender is recommended is to prevent pairs from forming within a species, which makes them much more territorial.

What size are you planning on making this tank? As previously noted, it's going to be an aggressive free-for-all.

Well I know I need a big tank I just dont know how big.. what do you think I should get?
Do you think it would be better if I didnt get the yellow lab, so it would be:
1 dolphin cichlid
1 blue ahli
1 blue peacock
1 powder blue socolofi
