Suitable aquarium - Aquarium Maintenance
It requires a minimum aquarium 200 liters, They need room to swim. Rocky areas with limits of natural territories. Like virtually no excavate, It can be maintained with plants resistant type anubias, Microsorum or Vallisnerias. The background can be gritty and strong lighting to highlight its colors.

Water
You need a good filtration and abundant water changes.

I take it from internet, just google it. Some pages suggest 300l but 200l should be fine

Sorry for not putting source link, I didn't read rules about links I will in a future

They are a haplochromis cichlid from lake malawI that can grow to 6 inches in length. I would say the smallest group you could keep them in is 3 females to 1 male. They are not a large species of haplochromis, so I would say the minimum tank size would be a standard 55 gallon, bigger is better though.

In a 55 gallon ideally 4F to 1M.

Would they fit in a 1 meter aquarium?

As a long term I wouldn't recommend it, perhaps as a grow out.

They require a 4 foot minimum because they are quite active and aggressive.

Our would a 100 x 40 x 30 cm fit

That size may work as a grow out for a young group, but I personally wouldn't recommend it as a permanent tank. Placidochromis sp. Jalo reef are an aggressive species that need enough room to get away from each other.
