What kind of african cichlids do you want? Malawi, tanganyikan, or victorian cichlids. I personally would add albino zebras, yellow labs, rusty cichlids, and scrapemouth mbuna.

What an unflattering name, that's a Labeotropheus trewavasae incase anyone was wondering.

Also I'm inclined to agree we can help you with stock until you tell us what type of "African cichlids " you want and what you're looking to accomplish with this tank.

Red Devils are highly aggressive so I wouldn't risk adding multiple fish to that setup
