I see the back of a gold saum (love this fish), some cool SD, is that a festae in the middle? Cool tank.

Thanks. My tank is primarily a New World cichlid tank, focusing on RT "Festae". Pictured is an adult female Festae. There also is a young adult male Festae, and a few juveniles. Despite what you read, the Festae aren't that bad. Mine are far less aggressive than Convicts. The tank boss is a GT "Rivulatus". He keeps the Festae in line. I keep a few African cichlids as dithers. The Silver Dollars are the spotted "Maculatus". I recently added a juvenile Red Texas cichlid as well as a standard Texas.

That is really cool. I was talking about the GT when I said gold saum, so many names for these guys but it's one of my favorite fish of all time. I had a gorgeous male who jumped from a tank about 3 months ago, even had a lid, he knocked it open. That male festae looks great too. Awesome taste in fish.

Here are my 2 tanks. The "blue" one is my 55 gal Mbuna. Which i am currently happy with. The "green" one is my 75 gal. With some small peacocks and haaps. As well as an electric blue accara. A baby blue convict. And a rainbow cichlid. Now this is where i need your help. Should i use this tank to go with peacocks and haaps. Or go more american. If american what would be some good tankmates.

My personal preference is with American / New World cichlids. I used Africans primarily as dither fish for my South Americans. I have since moved most of the africans to a reserve tank.
You already have an EB Accara, as well as a Convict "Just one of those" and a Rainbow cichlid. I would add one RIvulatus Green Terror Male and a pair of Fire Mouths. You might add a small school of Maculatus / Spotted Silver Dollars for movement. They stay relatively small.
I've learned that you can successfully keep Africans with aggressive New Worlds, but its awkward. New Worlds = River and Swamp fish, Africans = FW Reef. Not a good combination.

Note: Both your tanks look good.

Thank you! This is almost exactly what i was leaning twords. I have always wanted a green terror i think they r so beautiful. But i keep reading mixed opinions if they get to big for a 75 gal. Also do you think i would be able to keep tigar barbs with them?
