What kind of fish you looking for. You want stipes and bars? Do you want milder fish? I would do yellow labs and demosoni. That combination looks awesome and it works very well. You should get like 6 labs and 12 demosoni. You have to get alotof demosoni because they are highly aggressive toward eachother so you have to get alot of them. You could do yellow labs and cobalt blue zebras. Or yellow labs and acei. You could do three species of afra. I would go to http://www.cichlid-forum.com/article...s_profiles.php and check out the profile page and just look and read through all the fish in the mbuna malawi section. There are so many options...

well that gives me something to work with. Im guessing it's a 55? How many of each species do you have? I would get3-4 of the fish you already have If you don't already. Any of the afras would work. Females are dull though. hongi would be great. Socolofi might work. With any of these fish buy 3-4.

Increase the number of fish you already have to 3-4 to prevent aggression issues. You could get mbamba but again the females are dull. Get 3-4 of them. Your tank is pretty stocked as it is with species variety. If your going to add more your filteration and maintenence schedule must be flawless. How much gph are your filters combined and what's your water change schedule?
