Im thinking about getting my first cichlids.The fish i was thinking of is Herichthys centrarchus (Flier chichlid)
The tank is going to be a Juwel Rio 300 http://www.juwel-aquarium.de/en/rio.htm?cat=7&mat=7700about 84 uk/100 us galons or 380 liters.the wolume af the tank with stones and decor will probably end up being 300 liters.
The filter is an Eheim professional 2 or 3 depends on how much its going to costhttp://www.eheim.de/eheim/inhalte/index.jsp?key=9er_24958_ehen
Hoping to get about 6 juveniles and grow them up to get a breeding pair.
Will i be able to keep plants in ther tank or will they upproot everything?
Dose anybody have any experience with this fish,any pointers comments or advice would be apreciated.pardon the spelling.

i'm not sure about that exact species of cichlid, most cichlids WILL redecorate the tank for you! i'd say that it's a very good chance that he will. on the eheims, the pro 2 is less money then the pro 3 because the pro 3 is new and also is bigger and has a higher capacity than the pro 2. they are both very good filters though. i believe the pro2 and 3 both have inline heater systems too!-- another bonus. welcome to a.c.
