Hi Everyone I just have a quick question will a blue dolphin and frontosa be ok in the same tank? and would silver dollars be ok with them?

Yep, no SDs. They like the same water parameters as oscars.

frontosa are more lake tanganyika whereas moorii or dolphin cichlid are malawi, they can be mixed but then you'll have a tank full of blue fish, in a 150g i'd say 4 of each, 1 male with 3 females, and to add some more color you can go with a group of yellow labs (3male-5female) and if you don't want them to have too many younguns, add a solitary venustus male.

I'm guessing you've already done your research as to how to decorate the tank, just make sure to have some rocks where fish can hide between/in/under and lots of open sandy space also.

160 gallon south american
190 gallon malawi
