Stocking question?

So far for my 80 gal 48" long tank I have Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei" (Ngara), Cynotilapia afra (Cobue) orange top, and Labidochromis caeruleus. I'd like to add one more species that would go with them. I'm looking for ones that are closer to monomorphic, or if dimorphic that the females have color as well. I'd also like smaller type no larger than 6" preferably in the 4-5 inch range mature

These are all juvies that I have atm. I'll be thinning them down to the 1m:4F ratios once their old enough to sex.

Welcome to the forum

Iodeotropheus sprengae (Rusty) would go well with those cichlids, most African cichlids (Mbuna) are diamorphic so both sexes will have color, you only get monomorphic with peacocks when the males will color and the females will not. These are not compatible though with the fish you have.

I would also consider Metriclima Estherae (Red/Blue Zebra), it should be noted though that the chances of these crossing breeding with the yellow labs is very high. If you do add these, do not sell, trade or giveaway any of the fry, they will all be hybrids and are not desirable in the trade.
