Just wanted to put in that if you're interested in cichlids but don't want a large tank, look at Tanganyikan shell-dwellers. I keep multies (Neolamprologus multifasciatus), 5 adults and a ton of fry, in a 10 gallon. They're active and fascinating little fish, constantly digging and guarding their craters in the sand. You can't typically buy them in Petsmart/Petco type fish stores, but if you're interested, I can link you to a forum of hobbyists. Someone near you will have them, I'm sure.

Anyway, DO look into them. They're very cool.

I agree look into tanganyikans. You can often fit some of them into much smaller tanks.
