    Hey guys I want to stock a 90 gallon with cichilds but am not sure of what kind i kinda want to have a few diffrent kinds in there but would also like them to have a personality in the more aggressive manner. Also please tell me how many fish i can put in because i would want to know this as well. Thanks. (also i would prefer alot of color but will look at all of the options) :)

    Just the water weighs over 3000 pounds, and then you've got 800 pounds of rock and a 500 pound stand and ????

    You might as well add a boat to it from how much it weighs.

    What kind of filtering does your tank have? How often are you willing to do water changes? Those are the two top questions before you start an African tank :;bananawater

    I have heard that these are diffucult and not as hardy to take care of, if this is true i dont think they are a great choice for me as i am quite busy.

    Yes they' all on the mellow side and should be ok together.

    Are you talking about discus or Africans?
