New cichlid tank

Well guys, I've had this 75 gal for a little over a year now and it was filled with several species of cichlids until I had a major catastrophe and lost all of them. I stripped the tank down and redid it and now I'm trying to figure out what cichlids I want to put in it. Anyone have any suggestions?Click image for larger version

Well what are your water parameters? What do you like? Color? Behavior? Etc.

New cichlid tank

I love the cichlid stones. I have plenty of my own but I NEVER buy the small sized ones. I had my male ice blue swim in and couldn't turn around. I called my boyfriend freaking out and it was either break the ceramic apart and risk the fish getting cut or trying to tug him out. He had some good fin damage but he made it. Just my words of warning if you go with bigger fish. He was between juvenile and adult at the time so didn't think he would swim in and get stuck but the little bugger went right in! His name is now "Rocky".
