Could you be a little more species specific regarding zebra options?

You have several pretty dark colored fish in that list. Contrasts are great - the rusties, acei and maingano are all a dark purple blue.

They will all get along pretty well if you jam the tank full. 12 to a 55; 20 to a 75 would work great. get a few males of each - they wont kill each other, but you'll get more interaction.

I would swap out the acei for a zebra, maybe an OB type or a red / orange morph. I never cared for the acei. They breed like rats, too.

Got all the equipement either in the tank or on the way, picking up PFS today. I'm almost ready to start a leak test and filling it for cycling. Which brings me to stocking the tank.

Here is what I've been thinking after a couple substitutes.

Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei" (Msuli)
Labidochromis caeruleus
Iodotropheus sprengerae
Cynotilapia sp. 'hara'

Don't know the numbers of each yet but thats kind of what I'm thinking if anyone has any thoughts I'd love to hear them.
