I've got a roughly 163 Liter tank in the final stages of the fishless cycle, and I was wondering if I could get some kind of group of Tropheus into it, but many websites say 50 gallon minimum.

If the tank is indeed a 48 inch tank I don't think you would have any problem having a small group of tropheus. Provided they are all of the same species.
