Dont see why not..looks fine.

Probably around 50-75lbs, depending on what cichlids you are keeping. Lake Malawi need a deeper bed as they love to dig.

digging is something they defently do well,so what ever decoration like rocks/slate/wood
needs to be placed well into the substrate,as these fish will under mine things which can have
awful outcomes....... falling rocks ect.

Many people put egg crate (light diffuser panel) on the bottom of the glass before putting the substrate down. Please note they, the cichlids will more than likely expose it some point.

This is usually sorted out when you do a water change and just pushing the sand back to cover it.
