Are these tank mates suitable?

African cichlid, lake Malawi mbunas, i have a male bumblebee already but am looking at creating an all male tank. I want to add a male red zebra, and a male Labeotropheus Ochre.

I think it's the aggression level that matters. I think zebras work but I've never even heard of the other cichlid. It was just something that is available in male. And since my tank isn't really big enough for a group of bumblebee i figured i could get a few males that look different from eachother.

Is there anything in with the bumblebee now? If there isn't you will have problems adding anything in with him since it's his tank and he knows it.

Yes it will a good time to add more fish but you need to add 5 or 6 more to spread the aggression around.

Well, i still haven't added any tank mates. I think he rather enjoys the entire tank to himself. Thanks for the input!
