I wouldn't say any fish compatibility chart is set in stone.

any such chart is more of a guideline, not a rule. You'll always have exceptions.

Perhaps melanochromis are prone to malawi bloat? I don't know, I've never kept them but I assume they are primarily herbivorous which could be why the chart does not suggest keeping them with protein-loving aulonocara?
