Is the tank long or tall?
I like African Cichlids but if the tank is tall I'm not sure what cichs would be good for a tall tank.
Mbunas stay near the bottom mostly.
And are usually pretty territorial and aggressive.
Maybe some Peacocks.
A lot of mine stay from the middle up.
I like Julis and Multis, too
They stay pretty small.
My favorite is the Frontosa.
But not in a tank that size.
Fronts get big and need a big tank.
