most colourful cichlids

I have a 300l tanks that I'm looking to add around 10-15 cichlids to. I'd really like to get the most colourful and vibrant cichlids. Can anyone recomend any please?

Thanks

Wow they look great, do you have the scientific name for both of them so I can order some?

I've actually got a red empress (see my other post), his colours were kind of like yours when I got him but have since faired massively (see pics in ny other post),.... From reading on forums its either stress or the shop I got him from had him on hormones :-( hopefully his colour willcome back!

Can you recomend anything else?

Thanks!

In a 4' tank I don't think so, there is not nearly enough room for the very active haps, who need lots of open swimming space. Your best bet if your looking for African cichlids is some of the smaller Mbuna.
