New 93 Gallon Cichlid Tank
Hello All! I arrived to work yesterday to see that my boss has restocked her 93 gallon with:
2 Electric Blue Ahli
2 Colbalt Zebra
1 SB Peacock
2 Lemon Yellow Labs
2 Red Fin Forleyi
2 Yellow Peacock
2 Red Zebra
The tank is cycled and stable, but I haven't added any Malawi mix as of yet. I'm wondering if this is enough fish? Also, the tank has two nice big live plants, a piece of driftwood & a rock decoration, but I'm thinking they probably want more hiding places. Any advice? Thanks in advance as always!

In a 93 gal, 13 fish is not really heavy stock. They get decent size at adult but I would aim closer to 17-20 for a malawi tank. If it was all peacocks I would say even an all male 25 fish tank. Consider that a lot of those fish max out at 5in.
The addition of texas holy rock would be a great addition.FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's
