I have a 40 gallon tank and I am trying to decide if I should do something with angels and other peaceful fish, or I was thinking a Lake Malawi cichlid setup. Which do you think I should do?

Go with the Angels or something similar. 40gal is really a bit too small for most rift lake cichlids. It can be done but it requires really carefull fish selection & very dilligent maintainance practices.

If it were me I would probably go wit the Angels & other peacefull fish or some Apistos with some Rainbows.

That's what I was thinking. I was really leaning towards the angels anyway, but I thought the cichlids might be nice. I plan on setting up the tank this week, but it will be like till late July before I can add anything because I will be gone for 6 weeks in the summer and I don't want to add another tank someone will have to take care of for me. This will give the tank a good long time to establish, so that is good and it will give me something to look forward to!
