Default Polyodon Chinga with sp. Red Bulu Point?

So... after the disaster I'm starting to plan again.
I'll for sure get more Petros sp. Red (Bulu Point) next month to fill the loss. I plan to have a total of 17 which should be enough for now.
Unfortunately longolas are not available so I have to decide - either to get rid of the 6 of them who are still alive or to risk staying with just them. The second option is not very wise - I think they are 4 males and 2 females so the disaster will probably follow soon.
I have an option to trade the longolas for some polyodon Chinga - 15-16 of them with some additional payment from my side.
Now I have to decide. I like longolas much more than polyodon but 6 of them stand no chance. The guy who will take them will add to his colony (he has 21 of them). They are still very young so the chances are good. I'll take his Chinga colony.
What do you think about combination of Bulupoints and Chinga in the same tank? Will it be much more different than Bulupoints and longolas?

I would take the Chinga, while they are not as nice as Longola as you say the probability is you will end with 1 Longola Besides the Blue and yellows will look nice against the Reds. You can also restock with the Longola in the future when they have more.

Your decition on adding this other species is very much dependent on if you are hoping to have your bulus breed. They do way better breeding in a tank with only their own kind. You may want to ask others that have had more experience on that.

Thanks for your opinions!
Breeding is "on the table" but it's too early to think about it with a new colony of 4-6 cm long bulupoints. I hope that whiting the next 1-2 years I'll be able to have a larger separate tank for the two species.
I'll go for Chingas. Longolas are dogs and just 6 of them won't give me any chance.
