What rocks do you use and what cichlids would be good to start off with because I have my blue dolphins and my green terror plus a pair of jewel cichlids so its a bit of a crazy mix lol
The dolphins if they are what I'm thinking of get to big to be in there and shouldn't be mixed with the others. A jewel cichlid is an african river fish unlike the blue dolphin where its a african rift cichlid. A green terror shouldn't be with them either because its a new world cichlid.
So you have a lot of options but you'll need to decide on this
African rift Cichlids
African riverine Cichlids
New world Cichlids
Once you figure that out your going to need to re home some of those fish. Then get ones that do mix. Their are a lot of newbies that go the cichlid route. They just ask more questions then people that started out with say tropical fish
