Mixed African Cichlids
When starting a new tank, set it up with water and turn it on and let it run for at least 8 weeks and add a very small amount of fish food every other week.
Then buy fish.

You can't put that fish with them. LOL
Wanted a tank,
Got one and learned
Now love it and love doing it.
Fish store owners need to sell stuff to you no matter what happens to you or your fish. And 3K makes them forget your name.
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
