55 gallon stock help

Ok well i have a 55 gallon tank and i have 6 african chiclids. But i bought them out an assorted tank. On the lable the bigest they get is 6 to 10 inches. Do you think i could hold a couple more or im all set . And if i can do you think i could get a couple of different species i know thats probably a no.

Im not a expert at all, but from the other thread that let you know if how stocked your tank is. I have 4 cichlids and it says that I am right at 100% once grown

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Let start with pics. Then we could tell you how big they get. I have over 15 fish cichlids included in a 75. And over 30 in a 125. So let go here as long as you can fit them in with a well cleaning schedule. And if they only get to 5 to 6 inch like a lot of mixed cichlids they sell at the lfs's. You should be able to keep 10 of them in your 55. Now i would not recomend this for the beginer tho. You would also have to take in acount for the aggresion that a lot of africans have. That is My opinion.
