‘New topic’ will be top left in blue. :)

This is an aggressive cichlid thread, yours is a peaceful community thread, so it would get a tad confusing...

Edit... late again, as usual.

Can anyone help and answer my questions?

Are these compatible
Crimson tide or Cherry red
Yellow belly
Nyererei
Zebra obliquidens

Also thinking of adding a tropheus and a yellow lab, and then peacocks.

Some haps appear to be more aggressive towards similar looking fish to the point of killing them. Is this a problem with the listed fish? So would it be best to keep different species of haps and avoid doubling up

Would the ratio of 5-6 haps to 5-6 Peacocks and the tropheus yellow work?

Trying to get as much advice and research done.

Tropheus live in groups, but they need a big tank to be kept that way in aquaria. I wouldn’t attempt it in your tank. They’re also algae eaters, which should not be kept with carnivores (Haplochromis).
