The Acei's do swim around the top and are beautiful fish.
In my tank I stacked some rocks higher and it helped alot with them swimming higher up.
Well opinion's are like Bar-B-Q sauce recipe's ,eveybody's got one.
I think water not too warm, 76 degree's ,which also helps curb agression with cichlids, and alkaline conditon's would suit them just fine.
Only real problem is for those who feed flake foods.
Not much that swim's faster at grabbing food, but sinking pellet's would help keep danio's from grabbing the lion's share.
I have kept the Giant Danios, with much larger South American cichlid's without issues.
They adapt to wide range of water parameter's and are very active which requires some room .
