Default Dubs and Sun Spots for a 75?

I just got a 75 and would like to have both duboisi and moorii mpulungu sunspots in it. I'll probably get fry or juvis, so the question is how many of each? Should I start out with like 12 or 15 for each group? Would the two groups do ok as they grow etc? Should I just stick to one type?

Thanks in Advance
Jon

Get about 25 depending on filtration and water change routine and stick to one variant. Good luck.

Thanks Guys, I'll take the advice and stick to one varient. As far as my plan, I'll be using a Fluval 406 and AC 110 and do 30 % weekly water changes.

So one more question, could I squeeze in some Cypirchromis leptosoma in there with a Tropheus group? I'm a frontosa guy and new to Trophs, I'm guessing 30+ fish may be a bit much but thought I'd ask.

Mainly , because one of the groups will end up being the dominate group in the tank . Thus , making the other group the sub-dominate....which results in little to no breeding from the sub-dominate group . Also , the sub-dominate group usually won't display a great deal of color .

Cyps may work well. I think that a group of dubs and moops would be good together as they are significantly different but i bow to people here with more experience. My dubs are in with tropheus black and both groups breed fine.
