I am new to this, but I have decided that if I am keeping freshwater fish, I would like to keep Cichlids.
I initally wanted to have 3 x Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlids in my tank, as the feature fish, but I soon found out it is difficult to find tank mates for the Cichlids - every fish I looked was apparently a no-no (barbs, tetras, etc...)
So as my tank is cycling (started tonight) I am thinking about just setting up cichlid tank - although I would like to add panda cories as a bottom dweller.
Anyway, my tank 'stats' are:
Dimensions 92 x 35 x 55cm/36" x 14" x 22
Volume 177 l./39 gal. (46.76 US gal.)
Probable volume 159 l./35 gal. (42 US gal.)
If possible I would like to include the cockatoo dwarf cichlid and the msobo.
