Cichlid help

I love cichlids but after several attempts of keeping Africans failed I lost my faith in them no matter what I do they kill each other. So I would like to know of any good south American cichlid the will not kill eachother please respond

Have you tried Yellow Labs? They are very easy and probably one of the most peaceful Africans (Mbuna).

That's way overpriced. Yellow Labs should only be about $5 each if that. PetSmart/PetCo commonly carry them.

Try posting on craigslist for yellow labs, you can probably pick up a bunch of juveniles locally for $3-4 each.
