    Hey guys.

    I currently have a 55 gallon tank in the man cave with aggressive fish. Just purchased a 75 and I need suggestions on a community tank. I Was thinking about a african chiclid tank, but I'm not sure on how hard the up keep will be and I know the fish are expensive. I know to curb aggression you have to have at least ten fish to start. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    if you are going to have chiclids in your tank, I would get quite a few (10+) depending on size. also remember that (im sure you know) They are very active, alert and are fun to watch so they need a community (of chiclids)
    Having a tank full of aggressive fish can pose some problems. Once your tank is cycled, after about 1 month, then you can add all your cichlids at once and then they should live well in your tank and the filtration can handle the biological load that they place on the filter.
