I'm in the process of expansion and want to get some feedback on my situation.

I currently have a 30 gallon tank with the following:

1 male Red Zebra mbuna 3-4 inch roughly 8 years old
1 male Auratus (I believe) 1-2 inch; few months old

These fish came with the tank which we got from a friend about a month ago. Apparently, there was a 3rd fish that came with the Auratus, which was another Auratus.

First fish I've ever kept, and the fish keeping hobby bug bit.

I've got a 55 gallon cycling right now and want to add a few fish. Mainly to curb aggression between the two that I currently have. I want to add several males. I am currently leaning towards the following group:

1 of each

Metriaclima Pulpican (Kingsizei)
Yellow Tail Acei
Pundamilia Nyererei
Sulfer head Peacock

I may also get a "Chewere" but that depends on how this all plays out.

Should I add all these fish into the 55 gallon at one time. I was thinking of moving the 2 I currently have to the bigger tank next week and then add the others at once next month.
