I personally love Lake Malawis because there is so much variety. The display tank at the pet store I work at houses Kenyi, Msobo, Yellow Labs, Rustys, Elongatus, Red Zebra, Albino Zebra, Acei, Yellow Fin Boreyli(cant spell it) Cobalt Blue Zebras, and Venustus. The tank is gorgeous , has tons of color. Id say 10-15 in a 55gallon is fine. If you get closer to 15 fish I would have extra filtration. Theres supposed to an inch of fish per gallon so, 11 5 inch fish is fine but they are thicker bodied than tetras obviously so they will produce a lot more waste. I would have an extra smaller filter along with the one for the 55 gallon just to be safe. Have fun picking out your fish.
