Mbuna male tank stocking help?

I have a 72g bachelor pad in process. The ones I have right now are little 1-1.5 inches ..babys I guess. a rusty, an albino zebra(Greshakei), a mean little demasoni, and an acei. I want to overstock the tank but I am stumped at what to put in there. I want a colorful tank and cool personality traits...the more weird the better . I've had the demasoni and the acei for a couple months at least I think and recently got the other two. by far this is my fav tank so please help me figure out what else to put in there. and how many at a time should I be adding? Also I want at least one super exotic show piece fish. Help! I am new to the cichlids(somewhat) but a super quick study and not afraid to tke risks.
I want to get some more this weekend when I have time so the sooner the suggestion the better...and share your experiences with those fish if you can. Don't forget unles your somewhat sure that it'll work with Mbunas I don't think I'll try it.

I don't know anything about african cichlids. Perhaps you could get more of the species you have to start. If I recall correctly, you should have room to put like 20 fish in the tank. but don't quote me on that.
