Getting into African cichlids

Sofiafish17

Hey guys
So I think I want to get into African cichlids. I am limited to a 30 gallon tank and I wanted to hear what some people think. I know it is too small for Malawi cichlids, so I’m not really gonna go there. I was thinking maybe Lake Tanganyika cichlids, a small colony of some multie shell dwellers and maybe 2 female Neolamprologus Leleupi. I couldn’t find very much info on the leleupi so info on them would be great. I’m not stuck with these species, I am interested in hearing some other ideas too. I have tap water around neutral/7.0 so I would be using sand, crushed corals, rocks and maybe even cichlid salt to keep my ph, kh, and gh all high enough and stable. Please tell me what you’re thinking!

Multies are doable. A full grown leleupi might terrorize the multies.

Look at Yellow Rock Kribs. They stay small & even the females are colorful.
Maybe two males & four females.
They really only need a few rocks for decor. Yellow Rock Kribs are Haps, not Mbuna.
I kept a group for several years. Very durable & not too aggressive.
