New tank

Hey everyone just looking a little advice here, I haven't kept fish for 4-5 years as I was travelling but I used to have a 40gal tank with African cichilids. Iv recently picked up a 26gal tank so I can start up again, which kind of setup or fish would you recommend. The African setups are easy on the eye and are easily maintained so I was thinking of getting them again but I'm open to ideas
Cheers
Cahal

Salt water fish are easy on the eye also.

Welcome to the forum! I have a tank of angels and am strongly debating setting up a cichlid tank myself. Look forward to seeing what you go with!

Hey
I did try a salt water tank a few years ago and it was a total disaster and it's just put me off doing it again but I agree they are very easy on the eye!!

I do like angelfish, is my tank big enough for them? So many choices I don't know what to go for!
