37 gallon all of these fish are 3 inches or under right now jack dempsey, 3 convict cichlids, and 2 yes I know mbuna socolofi. I'm planning in the near future finding the Americans a new home or Africans I don't know which one yet but my conditions are better for Africans right now sadly.

The convict when they breed will tear up all of those fish. The jack will need a 55 gallon in the near future. The Africans also will need a 55 gallon IMO. You should just keep the cons or rehome all of them. But nice Christmas present!

New tank!!!!!!

I wouldn't add one until the entire cycle is complete yes they are hardy but don't do it. Do you have any filter media if you do add that into your new filter let it run for a day then add a con. But I would really just do cons in your tank. You sound like a responsible owner it might mean giving away your jack and mbuna until you get a 55+ I wouldn't get them.
