Nice tank tiger! I wish I could help but I'm overstocked. But I also run an fx5 and a AC 110.

Try your best to go with 1male to every 3 females of each cichlid...or go all male..

Why would you go with all male? because of the fact I got 2 yellow lab males the bigger one has non stopped bullied the littler one to the point where its lost its coloring, doesn't eat and hides all day. I actually think its going to die. Why would you go with all males?

An all male tank leaves them without females to fight over&and over stocking with plenty of hiding places is the key..
