Your welcome

With African cichlids remember to stock your tank wisely to avoid issues. They are naturally aggressive fish but you can avoid issues if done the right way.

Also... They like to hide in caves, rocks etc. they are considered rock dwellers. They need hiding places and areas to call home.

Also check the article section of the forum for an excellent read on stocking the right way. It was written by a good friend of mine and member of the forum Andrew McFadden. Check it out! It's a great article.

Just some nice rock and slate and make some caves out of them by stacking them. You could add driftwood also if you wanted to.

Google image cichlid setups. That will get your started. Everyone has different taste. To each there own
