Use GE-1 silicone and make some rock caves and walls, plant some live plants and live mosses and they will have all they need.

save your money and dont bother with live plants with african cichlids, they will just dig them up and destroy them........You can try fake plants, but more than likely they will keep digging those up too.........small sections of pvc pipe can also be used for caves and dens for cichlids
