Look forward to seeing your stocking list?
Gdgd, got a few ideas for some slate caves, I'm gonna try and recreate their natural environment in the wild best I can so I probably will try up the ph, is a ph of 7 or under bad for cichlids? I'm sure I read that somewhere on the Internet.

Gonna have to look into putting crushed coral in the filter, I'll have two external filters so should be room for it.

As for stock list, the only cichlids I'm certain of at the moment are the yellow labs, other than that I'm really unsure of what can go with it, need to do more research on the fish rather than their requirements haha

Right so I've been working on my stocking this weekend don't think I've looked at so many fish haha, this ain't the final stock, I'm just looking at a few ideas and not sure on how many or what ratios(m to f), but how does this sound so far?
yellow labs,
Mbamba yellow top
Cynotilapia Afra red top
Metriaclima pulpican
Pseudotropheus soclofi,
Would these all be ok?
