So I just got a new 55 gallon tank and I have began cycling it. I have a 10 gallon and 20 gallon with smaller fish like goldfish and neon tetras, but since this one is larger, I've been thinking about an American cichlid tank because I heard that the African cichlids are more aggressive. SO I want fish that are going to be pretty, but not fight and have species that can be housed with things other than cichlids. I know you're supposed to have the same sized cichlids and all so they can't eat each other, but from experience, can anyone just post different combinations of species I could put together as well as other species I can add like catfish? I honestly just want someone that knows what they're doing to tell me what to put in the tank. Thanks!

What kind of goldfish do you have? In all seriousness , you probably should upgrade them to the new tank and consider restocking their former home.

There is a cichlid subforum . Your best bet would be to peruse it for background and then zero in in specific topics of interest.

Here is a link.
