Answer by Darius
The general amount of African cichlids that can fit in a 55 gallon is from 8-12. However, many people overstock african cichlid tanks to lower aggression. In my 55 gallon (with mbuna african cichlids), I have 15 african cichlids and a synodontis eruptus catfish and the aggression is lower and I don’t see any problems with swimming, breathing, and it don’t look crammed.
