Totally new 29 gallon stock idea

Well... I opted to not put my 2nd beta into the 2nd gallon. Instead I got him his own 5 gallon tank so now both my betas have their own 5 gallon tanks.

My 29 still sits empty as it's cycling. I think I've made the decision to make it a cichlid tank.

I will def. be keeping to the smaller versions of the cichlids (probably no more than 5" max).

Any good ideas? My LFS doesn't have a great cichlid selection.

For a 29 Gallon, here are some ideas:

- Keyhole Cichlid
