It's not really recommended to combine Mbuna and Haps. The main reason is dietary requirements. Mbuna are almost entirely vegetarian where Haps need meaty foods. If Mbuna get too much protein they can't digest it properly and fall victim to "Malawi bloat". Unfortunately they will quite happily eat the foods that cause them problems which is why they are best kept separately from Haps.
A larger rockpile (firmly fixed) will spread the Mbuna through the tank as they take up areas of territory.
