    What are the normal water conditions in your tanks? If you have liquid rock for water, go with the African cichlids. If your water is soft with a low ph, go south american. Were I live the water is liquid rock and the rift lake fish do great. If you're careful, you can mix a bit cichlids from different lakes. Going with any one of the rift lakes is a good way to go.

    It is very easy to bring pH and hardness up, but very hard to bring and keep it down. So if your tap is soft you go with either soft water or hard water species, whereas if you have hard water you should stick with the hard water species.

    Too many fish, so little time (and space.) I really like rainbows, too, and was almost thinking of going that way but so many of them only reach 3" that they is no reason I can't add a few of them to my existing 55 gallon and still have that cichlid tank. Here I go again.......searching for peacocks. :)
