Newbie to aquariums.

Hello from Australia

I have been reading the forums for a few months now, researching on stocking and general aquarium care.

Trying to save a bit more money for my first aquarium, so I am planning a 120x40x50cm (48x16x20) African Lake Malawi. 240Litre (Just under 65G)

Beginner at fish so i was going to try 5-6 Lab. Caeruleus, 5-6 Iodotropheus Sprengerae, and 5-6 Pseudotropheus Acei. Ratio 1M:4F
Also 2-3 Cuckoo catfish and 2-3Bristlenose Catfish.

Filter i am thinking an Eheim 2217.

Any advice or suggestions on this setup so far?
Thanks

I'm from Adelaide. Are there many Aussies using this forum?

I have been quoted from $775 to $1000 just for cabinet, hood and aquarium. Not sure whether to go for a locally built one ($1000) or the cheaper one.

Hmm ya. It's pretty dang expensive here in Perth too. Around that price range depending on the looks and brand I believe! Argh I wish i was in the us! U can get $1 for each gallon! That's 65 dollars for the tank!!! Hahaha

So far ive found about 4 including us two. Though they ain't that active.
