    I haven't been here in awhile, but not that I'm aware of.

    The "thing" about cichlids is there are thousands of different species with new species being discovered quite often. Within a particular genus, many times there are similar temperaments, but not always. Of course, keeping two species of the same genus in the same tank creates risk of hybridization, which is another topic altogether.

    I was thinking just the more common ones. Which I do understand it may not be easy to say what's common or not. However this would really really really help people new to fish or even experienced people learning about cichlids. I know when I go to the lfs I get a little over whelmed by all the strong latina names on tank after tank of cichlids.

    Here is a link that gives a bit of information on correctly stocking cichlids.

     

    Hope this helps!

    And btw-MANY of us have been there! It is difficult to know how to properly stock cichlids, even for those of us who have been doing it awhile.
