What is the reasoning behind this? I have heard this only with some affrican cics and while I can't say for sure as I've never kept them, I think it's to do with agression levels.

With DPs overcrowding would actually lead to a worse agression problem. With any peeaceful community fish such as livebearers or tetras it will only cause a lack of swimming space and lead to bad water quality due to the bioload being exceeded.

Well I meant to say african cichlids because I also have a 55 gallon with all cichlids in it. I just wanted to know if its ok for other fish but it seems to not be.
