I am planning to buy new aquarium and I am thinking of brining in Cichlids in to it. I understand that Cichlids need lot of hiding places. I would like to know is Sand Gravel a good option or should I try something else. Any other useful info to help me setup this tank would be very helpful.

Some cichlids prefer a softy almost acidic ph while other like Africans need the harder water with a higher ph.
You can get gravel for Africans to raise the ph.Have you tested your water yet?
It may already be perfect for the cichlids of choice.
