What is the ideal water condition for cichlids?

Hi,
I am currently cycling my 80 gal tank. and i am thinking to fill that tank up with some african cichlid, or s. american cichlids.
I am not sure what is the good water condition,e.g: ph,kh,ammonia,nitride,etc.
Is there a chart that i can refer to?
Thanks for any inputs.

hi
i kept a tank full some years ago,then of reasons shut
the system down.then had electric yellows,in a species tank
of their own,(there is a thread called "a bit of yellow anyone"
in the freahwater photos section)
i do have two males,one of which is a sub male,
they are living in the big tank with everyone else.
i lost the females while on holiday.
not an ideal situation,and they will either go back to the LFS
or i will give them a tank of their own.
i will try to help with anythng else if i can.
:)
