1st African Cichlid Setup, HELP!!!
 
I'm going to setup a African cichlid tank soon. I just got a standard 120 gallon tank that I'm going to use. I want to try a peacock/hap tank. I'm looking for suggestions on stocking.

I plan on using Caribsea cichlid sand and rocks for decor with a blue background.

I want suggestions on stock and tips n tricks that u may have for a cichlid tank.

All sounds good. My advice would be to stock heavy, even slightly overstocked. It'll curb aggression.

I have a 80gal peacock tank with same sand that would be (Iíd class as moderately over stocked, but excessively over filtered) with peacocks, red zebras, yellow labs and a couple of others.

Definitely would advise lotssss of hiding holes. Iím using Texas holey rock but itís covered in algae (which the fish eat so canít be too bad) but would like to move to black slate in the future.

I donít get much aggression (The occasionally Ďget lostí Iím guessing) but theyíre all healthy and seem happy enough.

Really colourful and lively tank - I have a 200 gal Rainbow fish tank which is lovely but the colours just arenít in the same league as the peacocks.

Also, I got all of mine as juvies from several places at approx the same age with the Ďgrow them up together they might play nice long termí idea - seems to be working

Nice looking African tank. I like the look of algae covered Texas Holey rock. Bone white rocks look a little sterile to me. I have a 120 long African setup, hardscaped with THR.
