Hi all

Hi fish lovers
I'm Craig from Cardiff, UK.
I've been keeping fish pretty much all of my life. The usual progression from Goldfish, Community Tropical, African Cichlids & my new project is a 5ft, 120g New World Cichlid tank. I'm so pleased to have found this group because when it comes to American Cichlids I'm pretty clueless, so hoping to get lots of advice & information off other members.

What am I considering Dalto?!! This is where I'm stuck. There are so many stunning fish from S&C America but aggression & size vary greatly. I was thinking of a semi-aggressive tank. I love Severums, Electric Blue/Blue Acara, Festivums, Jack Dempsey (although I've heard the electric blue variety are less aggressive) and including Pictus Catfish & Dwarf Neon Rainbows. And that's it! I'm totally stumped! If I tell you my plans maybe you could help with stocking ideas, numbers etc. Sand bottom, lovely piece of bogwood, rocks & caves, fixed fake plants. Using x2 fluval 406. Mains water is slightly acidic & soft. Any ideas? Numbers? Other fish to look at? Thank you (Fingers crossed I've done this right!)
