    I'm sorry I'm not familiar with cichlids, but it sounds like a pretty tank. Someone with more experience should have some good ideas for you. :)

    I love your setup! I'm not much of a cichlid expert eather but a Firemouth would be a nice addition. Just have to wait and see what others have to say.

    By julie do you mean julidochromis from lake tangyanika? If so these aren't compatible.

    Hmm, how about a blue acara, or a blood parrot or 2 :)

    the blood parrots (sorry i know nothing about them) at my LFS are adorable, always hanging out inside this bell decoration. i dont know if it is healty or not, but they always squeeze themselved in there (multiple ones too!) the only thing i do know about them is the like buddies.

    Jack Dempseys have nice coloring but grow to approx 9". I really liked the one I had awhile back but gave him away due to wanting different fish.
