Cichlids in a 29Gal

I am starting to like cics, and I was wondering what kinds of cics and how many I could put in a 29 gallon tank. I know I can't add Oscars, JD's, Angles, etc, but I want to know what I could add.

A few angels would be ok, say 3-4. Dwarf cihclids, keyholes, ports, apistogrammas, rams would be some New World cihlids. Julii, kribs would be Old World examples.

Ok.

I meant to say 29-35 gallon, so I guess that might be able to open up a bit more for a group.

What type/types of cics would you suggest, and how many of each would be the best?

hi
yellow labs would look nice,however you need to remember that they
will grow to about 4inches,and the males will fight for
territory,i have got two males in a 4ft(waiting to be returned long story)
and they meet in the middle and squabble often.
i would say to go with rams,or the others that herefishy sugested.
jmho :)

Ok, that is a useful link.

I was also wondering about a 20gallon. Sorry for all the different gallon sizes.

I was looking at the "Assorted" African Cics today, and I really like their personally and colors. Would I be able to add these into a 20?

its probrably better to stay away from the asst. tanks.........you never really know what you are getting.......your best bet would be to try and hook up with some local breeders/enthusiasts........it will most likely be a lot cheaper this way also........
i am in the process of setting up a 20g long myself and will be stocking a pair of Kribensis (west african cic) with some cherry barbs..........
you could also do some of the Tang "Shellies" or some of the dwarf cichlids.........
