    Hello. I posted here a while back about wanting to try cichlids. Well, I was finally able to visit the LFS today and this is what they had in cichlids:

    Yellow Lab
    Electric Blue Johanni
    Lemon Cichlid
    Cobalt Blue Cichlid
    Bolivian Ram
    Jack Dempsey

    I have a 37 gallon Eclipse. Would I be able to keep any of these in my aquarium and how many? I was thinking about the Lemon's, Cobalt Blue's, and Bolivian Rams. At the store the convicts and jack dempsey's were in separate tanks. The yellow labs and electric blue johanni's were together, and the lemon's, cobalt blue's, and bolivian ram's were together so I'm assuming they were compatible with each other.

    Not really.
    Theyare more suitable to be kept together in the following groupings.

    Group 1
    Jack Dempsey

    Group 2
    Lemon cichlids

    Group 3
    Bolivian ram

    Group 4
    Yellow Lab
    Electric Blue Johanni
    Cobalt Blue Cichlid

    What type of cichlid tank to you want? do you want plants?

    I have plastic plants...I don't want real. I'm not sure what you mean by what kind of cichlid tank. I'm new to cichlids.

    ok. group one are central American cichlids. They are easy to care for and quite aggressive.

    The second group is from Lake Tangyaika and requires high pH.

    The third group is from South America and Bolivian rams are small rather colourless fishes that want soft water. They are very friendly and can be kept together with tetras and other fish while the other groups are best kept with other cichlids.

    The fourth group is cichlids from Lake Malawi in Africa. They are mouth brooders and want an aquarium with a lot of rock formations. These cichlids also prefer high pH.

    The easiest of this fishes to keep and breed are convicts.

    Does this help in any small way?
