    I currently have
    3 borsmani rainbows
    4 blood parrots
    2 blu ahlis
    Large pleco
    Leporinus facioutis (trying to get rid of)

    I'd like to add-

    Aulonocara Lwanda peacock
    Eureka red peacock
    German red peacock
    Sunburst peacock
    Red Top Galliraya.
    Letheinhops intermedium
    Fire fish peacock
    Petricola catfish
    Ivory mioto

    I don't nesicarily want to add them all at the same time but eventually would like to have them all.

    I'm running a 75gallon tank with lace rock, sand, 250w heater, eheim 2217 and the national geographic led light. Wouldn't mind adding a sump at some time.

    And information you have would be very helpful

    You should not mix African cichlids with community fish such as the boesemani rainbowfish. You need to pick 2-3 species of cichlids and have proper male to female ratios in order to avoid problems. LeoDiaz

    Blood parrots are SA cichlids i wouldnt mix them with africans you will have to home them to be able to get other africans.

    So if I get rid of my besemani and blood parrots I could put all the other fish together? Considering I have a good male to female ratio

    No you cant you can only have 3 species in a 75 1male 5/6 females for each species. So if you rehome those extras you can choose 3 species only.
