That heavily depends on the Cichlid. I have Convict Cichlids in a 20 gallon long as I'm waiting for them to pair off, and when they do I HAVE to remove the rest because they will be killed by the pair while they protect their babies.

You might want to start a new thread in the convict specific forum.

I was looking at the demansons chichlid... But they look to be super aggressive... And since I'd like a community tank, I'm not sure. What would you guys usually stock a 10-30 gallon with?

Yeah, from what I understand with a lot of Cichlids you can have a community, but it can only contain certain Cichlids. And those fish will compete over space in the tank like they would in the wild. You can't have many communities where it's Cichlids with non Cichlids (for African). Some South American cichlids are obviously different and can be, but the tank would maybe be too small for them. I actually think Angels are even considered south american cichlids...

Well, if you were stocking a thirty gallon, what would you put in it?

I'd use it as a Tiger Barb species tank (a tank with just one type of fish in it). But that's me... I don't know that you would like them. Maybe watch the videos on the link below.
Fish I've kept: Tiger Barbs

I really, really miss them now. I sold them to a local LFS a while back.

They look cool! but after looking at some stuff online, I'm thinking about doing five or six black skirts tetras, 2 orange laser cories, and maybe a German blue ram, or a keyhole cichlid to start off. Does this sound alright?

That's cool. I'd rather have someone not tell me anything then say a bunch of false stuff that will just make me confused. And I started the cichlid post, so I'll see what comes. You've all been really helpful, so thanks, and I'm always open for suggestions!
