60 Gallon Tank Stocking Ideas for 60 Gal Planted Cichlid Tank

Elliott03

In the coming weeks I plan to revamp my 60 gallon freshwater tank, but I am struggling with ideas. I want to do a Cichlid tank, but haven't done one before. Ideally, it would be planted as well, but I haven't done that before, so wondering if you think I'm taking on too much? Anyways, my wife and I love active fish that are fun to watch and are very colorful. Any stocking recommendations would be greatly appreciated!! I do currently have 3 cory catfish and a zebra pleco.

What Cichlids are you planning. Africans are hard on plants. Something to consider. I have been unable to keep any plants in my 55g cichlid tank over 2 years.

I was thinking Electric Blue Acara and Geophagus Tapajos. I'm more committed to doing a cichlid tank and not as sold on doing a planted tank.
