Sup! Here in the following months Im planning on getting a 80-100 gallon tank and would really like to put cichlids in it. With doing some research I think Malawain species would be best for me as I read they tend to get along with each other easier than the other species.
This is along the lines of how I would set the tank up, feel free to critique :)
-Sand instead of gravel
-Driftwood or River Rocks...or both
In the 20 gallon I currently own, I have a pleco that Ive had since my 5 gallon. Hes bout 6 years old and I would hate to keep him in that small of a tank when theres a bigger one available, I'm pretty sure that hes a Sailfin Pleco. Would the pH lvl be too harsh for him and would the cichlids get along with him?
Are there certain plants that I wiill need to use to accomidate the high pH? If so what kind?
What kinds of Malawain cichlids are there? as Im not familiar with them
I cant think of any other questions atm so feel free to throw in any other advice! I appreciate any feedback :)
