    Lightbulb Stocking: Which Fish Should I Add?

    0 Not allowed!
    Currently I have a 55gal with:
    -1 orange blossom cichlid (1.5")
    -1 jewel cichlid (1.5")
    -1 electric blue cichlid (3")
    -1 afra jallo reef look-alike (not sure what he is...5")
    -1 pleco (6")
    -1 blood parrot (3.5")
    -1 dempsey (6")

    I want to add one more fish, and I want it to be yellow. I know the electric yellow cichlid would be the obvious choice, but are there any other ideas that would add some yellow and be compatible in this tank? The electric yellow is a classic but I'd like something more interesting. I've been looking at yellow peacocks. What other cichlids (African) are primarily yellow?

    Sorry but you are way overstocked as it is. The amount of water changes you will need to do to keep the nitrates below 20ppm will be massive, frequent, and labor intensive with your current stock.

    If you want more african cichlids then you should rehome the blood parrot, jack dempsey, and pleco. Also, you need to get an API freshwater master test kit and test ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates.
