Small Cichlid with Medium Cichlid

Ok, All of my cichlids are between 1.5" -2.0" long, Well I found some cichlids that are approx .75" long. Would they be compatible with mine as far as being eaten? I have alot of honeycomb rock for them to seek shelter, but I'm not sure they'll have a chance to survive.

i would be cautios of the johanni's these are one of the most aggressive african's out there and might bully the much smaller new additions, i know when i add new mates to my tank the johannio beats on the m for a good 2-3 days untill the pecking order is established.

Watch those kenyi too. They are very aggressive and grow bigger and stockier than most mbunas. Oh, and the scientific namr for kenyi is Metriaclima lombardoi. They are part of the zebra complex.
