    Well it has been a long time since I've been on AC. Well Id like some input and ideas for a 55gallon cichlid tank. I honestly don't care if it American Cichlids africa anything. I'm just looking for some ideas. I don't have any thoughts so any input at all is welcome.

    Thanks

    welcome back :)

    You know I will reccommend Africans. 55 is just a great size tank for malawis or tangs. For malawis I could see a large group of yellow labs, a colony of demasoni and some synodontis catfish or even a couple of crayfish with black or natural sand, black background and pale rockwork....would be stunning - you'll have to narrow it down yourself though.

    Coler That was what I was thinking I'd like to make it the show tank of the living room. So active And brightly colored Africans sound great I'll probably go with tangs

    jpappy you have any good species in mind? Lol I know there's gota be atleast a dozen in there

    johnlarson I plan on doing both I love some of the livestock at my LFS and if they don't have a species I'm looking for I'll just order from rapps or someone on here

    Dave's rare fish has some really good tangs and he gets all sorts of cool stuff. He is a great guy also.

    Also thinking about maybe trying discus? And some guppy or swordtail. Not sure if they'd all get along what do you guys think?

    Oh my, so many options...

    I'm partial to shellies (multies, brevis, occies, ect.) and with a 55 gallon you could do calvus and maybe a julie pair or some leleupi as well.
