If they are red zebras and yellow lab those are for sure Malawi and not Tanganyika. They are harem breeders and need 4-5 in each group of each kind to spread aggression. That ratio being 1n-4-5 female depending on the species.
Minimum tank size is 55g.
Need plenty of filtration.
Most importantly don't impulse buy. Cichlids of all kind come with a unseen warning label. All have aggression one way or another, its just a matter of how you handle it.
