25 big enough?

Would REALLY like to get some african cichlids. Honestly, I don't know a lot about them other than that I love the yellow color! Which is not a good enough reason to get them if I don't have the proper equipment. I just recently bought a "live plant aquarium" size 25 gallons and would love to put some of these gorgeous fish in there. Was just wondering if it was possible for me to put them in there. And if so, how many could go in there?I plan on adding some of the anubias species of plants in it too. Was wondering also about adding a dwarf frog with them, possibly a clam. Don't be afraid to let me know if this is completely unfeasible! lol

No frogs and clams.

If you insist keeping African cichlids, I suggest you look into the neolamprologus shell dwellers as these ones will be absolutely fine in 25g tanks. They are far too small dwelling mostly inside shells. If you can find surplus number of shells, be sure to provide them those.

a good ratio for the shell dwellers is 1 male and 5 females
