Aquascape for African Cichlid aggression?

Hemikyle

Hello, I have a community African Cichlid tank, and I have been noticing some aggression going on with them I know this is a common thing with African Cichlids but I'd like to help keep it down the best I can. Now below I'll post pictures of what my tank looks as of right now. I'm wondering if this is good enough? Or should i be adding more taller decor to divert the anger towards the lowest cichlid on the list getting bullied. Whats your thoughts and opinions?

List of Cichlids

Yellow Lab Mbunas
White Mouth Mdokas
Parrot Cichlids
Convict Cichlids
Various Peacock Cichlids
Tropheus Duboisi
Blue Polar Cichlid
Hap Cichlids
Frontosa Cichlid
Cuckoo Catfish

Can you please list the fish with numbers? I am pretty positive there will have to be some stocking reduction and clear ID for all species, Haps and peacocks are dozens of species.

Like as how many I have total in the tank? Because I don't know exactly every name of the Peacocks by heart I only know a select few

Well, then we will have to ID them. :)

As I mention over and over again, Malawi cichlids have to be handpicked and your mix with central americans and tanganyikans is just from what I already know a ticking time bomb.

How would I be able to ID them ? And is there any way to take good pictures of Cichlids because they always move way to fast to get a solid picture.
