Is 12 African cichlids to much for a 54 gallon tank? the max size is up to 5 inches and I want to over stock a little too keep the aggression down some, I will do heavy maintenance to keep the water quality good to

Never kept cichlids although I think they are cool, pretty fish. But all my tanks are planted or heavily planted.

But based on what i’ Read, 8 would be pushing it.
