Id like some suggestions on large african hap cichlids.

Im looking at a 75 for a single beauty Or maybe a group of 3. Obviously not too big.

a deep water hap is next on my list. I just think he'll look great with my others, but don't know if he's colorful enough as a centerpiece.. try this site:

Nice suggestions. Thanks. Ill ask another more specific question.

I saw some large tilapia today, theyre just what i want but too aggressive. Anyone know of cichlids of this robustness and size that 1male 3 females will work.

Real nice fish. Whats his attitude like? In comparison to your other cichs how intelligent would you consider him to be?

I was in the lfs today and they had a tilapia and was mesmorised by how intelligent it seemed to be. Got home researched them and read the words 'highly aggressive' and my heart sank and then '18inchs' put the tail on the donkey

He's calm and collected compared to my others. He's got the typical peacock behavior. I don't know how smart he is lol. I mean he's not a mindless zombie and is defiantly fun to watch.
Got a pic of him
