im completely new to cichlids however i really like them and i want to start keeping them.
I currently have a 30g tank with several tetras and corys and a bristle nose pleco. however im thinking of converting this to a cichlid tank, keeping the birstle nose if possible.
so what id like to ask is what sorts of cichlids could i keep? bearing in mind i know almost nothing about this type of fish. how many could i keep? what filtration would i need, i currently have a aqua one 700 canister filter. what sort of decorations and water parameters would i need for whatever fish you suggest.
any suggestions would be heaps of help. thanks :)
