Green terror male

Jack dempsey male

Ancistrus

Green terror male

Convict male

Firemouth male

Pictus



4th :

20 mbunas male ( which stock ?)

Ancistrus



5th : your idea ? I mainly want big cichlids i like few big ones instead of many small ones but give me your idea of that



If any of those stock wont work tell me the dimensions of the tank is : 40 inch length 16 inch width and 20 inch height ( NOT a standard 55 )

Sorry to be negative but none of those will work (although i'm not sure about the mbuna as i know nothing about them). I think the tank would be too small for a Male GT or Oscar. The Oscar would probably eat the Ancistrus. You could do the Con, Firemouth and Pictus with a shoal of something.

Rainbow cichlids or fire mouths could work. Convicts would be another option but they breed frequently.

Im wary of pictus at the moment. I had one, never saw it because it was nocturnal, and it ate my cories. But you have more substantial fish, so you dont have to worry about that. Id dissuade you from the pictus because its nocturnal, so you might not get to see it as often as youd want. Something to bear in mind.
