Betta breeding can be quite the pain, once the males grow you have to have A LOT of jars lying around to keep them all in, and it's hard without a heated fish room.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Some of the things to consider when choosing which ones are

1) What is your water out the tap like, pH, Hardness, this would make it easier to choose and save you the work of having to dose the tank to correct the chemistry.

2) What is available locally?

in a 60g tank ideally look at 12-15 Maximum African Rift Lake cichlids.

You can check a large selection of cichlids out in our profile section, click on "Tropical Fish Profiles" on the solid Blue bar at the top of the screen and browse to the cichlids section.

Perhaps check on here about compatibility before committing to buy and making a bad selection.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
