If u went africans, you would need hard water, you can get kits to help with this. Africans need a lot of hiding places, try building up some slate to form caves and piles and overhangs. 36uk g is not a whole lot of room for most africans, unless u went with shell dwellers, which r also much more peaceful, as most africans are very aggressive. if u went with shell dwellers, u would not have to have lots of rocks, but u would have to provide lots (2-3 per fish) of shells. For a tank that size I would go with a group of shell dwellers and that would give you the option of smaller schooling species, e.g. danios or barbs. Most african cichlids (except for shell dwellers) with eat or rip apart the smaller schooling fish. Follow this advice, but, again, the answer is always RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH. Cheers and good luck, I hope your tank brings u many years of joy and fascination.
