Since mpanga is mainly herbivorious, it won't fit to your
current fish because of dietary needs; it is also from rocky,
sediment-free habitat, which does not suit Aulonacaras.

So I advise against it. But if you go for it, remember it
is mildly agressive mbuna, and best gender combination
would be 1+3 or 2+5.

It also depends on the tank size you have.

My opinion, of course.

500L Malawi Mbuna Tank
500L Malawi Non-Mbuna Tank
