Hello everyone, I am going to be getting my african cichlids this week!!! Im so excited!!! I have a 37 gallon tank because that is all that I can afford at the moment because I am going to school full time. I have been told that a 55 gallon tank is the minimum that can be used for african cichlids but I have a feeling that I wont have a problem with having a 37 gallon tank. I have seen some tanks about my size do just fine with housing african cichlids. I want to know which ones will be compatible with each other and wont be at each others lives everyday. I have about four rocks that can be used for hiding because I know they like the cave effect. I also want to have somewhat of a variety of cichlids (not just all one type). I will be getting a bigger tank in a few years once I move into my own place. I know that in an african cichlid tank you want to "overcrowd" the tank so the aggression is at a minimum and I like that. Can someone please give me some valid tips as to what ones will be safe with each other? I will also be starting them young so they can grow up with each other and will feel comfortable with one another. Thank You!!!
