well what are your water parameters and what types of Cichlids do you have in there already.. these factors will have a huge effect on further suggestions....

Get rid of those auratus. They will kill eachother and then they will kill your labs. I would suggest sticking to an all cichlid lake malawi tank. So you have what 4 labs. i would get like 4 more labs to start and get 8 acei. Or you could get 4 more labs and get 12 demasoni cichlids. That would be nice.
