Aquarium size for cichlids

Hello all. I currently have 6 african cichlid babies in a 30 gallon tank. Am planning on upgrading them here in a few months as I know they get fairly large. My question is this- what size tank should I start looking for? I've got my eye on an 80 gallon tank- would this be large enough? Too large, could I possibly get a few more fish to put in it? Any advice would be great. My fish are roughly between 1.5" and 2" now, and at the rate they're eating, they'll be outgrowing my tank in a year!!

It entirely depends on which species they are. Some africans stay small, others get huge. Can you post pictures of them to see which ones you have?
