I know that overstocking my Mbuna tank is a smart move to avoid too much aggression, but what’s a good number of Mbuna to put in my 55? I have 11 and a pleco so far

I initially kept my mbuna in a 55 gallon. In that tank I kept 20 younger fish then moved those and their babies to a 125 then to a 150.

So far I’m thinking between 15-20

If you have a lot of filtering and do weekly WC you can put 18 to 20 fish.
