    haha, xD and lol.

    African lake cichlids like the blotched zebra means your tank will not be planted for long. Blood parrots get pretty big.
    South American ciclids like the blue ram work a lot better in a planted tank. West African species like the kribs also. Both will start breeding if you get a pair, set up a territory and start beating up anything that comes near, something to plan for.

    If you want a crowded aquarium with brighly coloured fish then remove the plants and go for a Mbuna setup, http://www.cichlid-forum.com/article...cutter_55g.php

    Any cichlid requires a bit of your own research as well so I'd advice you to do more than just ask here.

    omg mbuna set is so 0.o awesome!Sad thing is i got all these plants i just bought n added them in ._. so maybe the next tank that no one knows im saving for haha >.> (coughs) so basically a brightly colored tank of ciclids wouldnt work with a planted tank. ok so thank you then lol i`ll have to wait on getting a future tank n setting it up just for that 0.o because u just shown me something n i love it haha xD

    haha. You could house a single male/female pair of kribs with other fish if there's room for that couple to set up a territory. So, territorial boundries are key, plants, pebbles, wood, whatever.

    Many fish would work in your tank that are cichlids. Multiple appistograma types, bolivian and the one you found, the German Blue Ram, Keyhole cichlids, the Kribs you are talking about are absolutely beautiful, and when you get them in breeding colors they are amazing. You can get a great mix of other schools to fill out your large mid section there and these s/a cichlids will do fine with other fish schools.
