I don't have enough cichlids

So I currently have a 45g tank with
1x deep water hap
1x eureka peacock
1x benga sunshine peacock
1x calvus
3 synodontis petricola

The tanks been running for about two years now. I will admit when I first got the fish, I probably didn't do enough research. Fast forward to now, all fish are full grown and the tank is too small. My question is, that because of space and money, I can upgrade to a 75g, that's my max. My question is, will this be ok along with me adding about four more peacocks to help with aggression and four more synos?

I would think that would be OK. You have to over stock a little with Africans anyway.

Peacocks aren't that nasty anyway unless there are ladies around to show off for.
