How many cichlids in a 29 gal tank?

I went to Petsmart looking for substrate and noticed they have some new cichlids. I have a 29 gallon tank now whose inhabitants will be moving to a 75 planted soon.
How many Brichardi cichlids could I reasonably keep in there? I was also interested in the Acei, Auratus, and Demosoni. Not all at once of course, of those those 4 which is best for that sized tank?

For the 29 gallon none of the Africians the tank is too small. (Acei etc)

Bichardi species only tank with a bonded pair in the 29g.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
