I also forgot that I've got 5 chilotilapia rhoadesii on order from months ago, would they fit in or should I swap them for something else?

I would swap them for something else, they prefer muddy bottoms and get to 13", requiring a 180g tank.

They are extremely hard to find in the hobby and rarely come up. With what you have I would not add anything else until the fish mature and you know how they are behaving with each other.

Oh that's a shame. I must admit I didn't research them much before I placed the order, I'd never seen them before and got too excited!! I've got one little guy at the moment but apparently they oversold their stock and the other 5 are on back order I guess until the next shipment.
What do u think of Melanochromis Joanjohnsonae (pearl of likoma I think it's called?) instead? Saw some of these in my lfs and they had this stunning metallic sheen almost like a sparkle to them, really pretty

They have been renamed Labidochromis joanjohnsonae, and as such sorry but no, they are mildly aggressive but like the Tropheus hate each other with a passion.

I would not add them with the yellow labs as I mentioned before about mixing the same genus.
