So i keep changing my mind on what to put in my planted 20 gal as a centerpiece. i cant decide between pair of rams, apistos, or kribs. Does anyone have any insight or experience with all three?

Of the three, kribs are the most hardy and forgiving. Other two need soft and slightly acid water. Rams need temps 82-86. Apistos like it 75-80.

if you are going for looks cactuoides aspisto are the winner in my mind small and very brightly colored fins, also called the cacatoo cichlid.

I'd go with Kribs... as Dave stated, they are a lot hardier than the other 2 speicies.

yeah, because of my college and work demands, a lower maintenance fish would probably be best.
