New 55 Gallon, Looking for stocking suggestions.



Hi all, new to this forum so ill test the waters with a question

I Just went out and picked myself up a 55 gallon tank, Began cycling process this morning.

I'm looking for some stocking suggestions with these ideas kept in mind,

- I lean more toward cichlids than any other species
- Specialize in Dwarf cichlids and aspitogramma
- Planning on live planting the tank

I'd really like to have a massive dwarf tank but i am aware that it would take some serious time and effort to get it all done.

Open to any suggestions, Help a guy out!

Since it'll be planted, it might be good to have some botia loaches for snail prevention/control. A school of zebra or angelicus loaches would be beautiful and go wonderfully with any dwarf cichlid.
