29 gallon cichlid tank?

I have an empty 29 gallon tank (standard) I was thinking of setting up. I have always loved cichlids. I am thinking a cichlid community type tank would be fun. So what types of cichlids could I get and how many of each?

Also any tips on decoratiosn and such for someone who hasn't really kept many cichlids before. (only ever had firemouths)

What kind of cichlids are you wanting to do? lake malawi? You will have to stick with small ones. They like rocks and small spots to hide, I have a 55 gallon cichlid tank and have slate in it. They are territorial so you need lots of spots for them to have their own place

You could also do some sort of mikrogeophagus or a west african dwarf pair of sorts would be happy as a pig on poop!

I am actually open to any varities. As long as they will be happy. I really don't know much about the dwarf cichlids but I knew I would have to go that route. I was just hoping for lots of recs to get an idea of what to do.
