This is a discussion on 100(110) Gallon stocking within the Freshwater and Tropical Fish forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> Maybe different colored Convicts? Jack Dempsey? South American Cichlids in general? Does this get the juices flowing for anyone? anyone there? lol...

Lake Malawi cichlids and African cichlids in general prefer hard water. For your soft water South American cichlids would be a good fit. I know they're cliche but I love a planted Angelfish tank. You cod have a couple schools of tetra such as Lemon, Diamond or Bleeding Heart tetras and maybe a big group of cories for the bottom.

Another favorite of mine are Severum although they may nibble on the plants. My Severum got along well with my cories and BN pleco.

I'm leaving heavy on a Cichlid tank... I was leaning towards the Malawi tank, but if you don't think my water plus crushed coral or something help to buffer it and increase the PH will work, lets look at South American Cichlids.... Which ones play well together and provide some color?

Thinking...

4 x Blue Acara
4 x Festivum
maybe some yellow convicts?
and/or firemouths

I've read and read but not sure what would best suit these guys as far as numbers

Festivum are kind of like angelfish in that you should do a group and they don't get too big so you can probably do 6 of them. I haven't kept Blue Acaras so not certain on those. Personally, I would go with a Firemouth over a Convict. I have both and my experience has been that Firemouths are more bark than bite but Convicts can be little boogers and mess wuth other fish even much larger than them. If you do get a Convict stick to just one as a pair may
make everyone else in the tank muserable

I know bioload wise the tank can hold more, but I keep getting warnings from aqadvisor that they may require more territory then my tank has even though the stocking % is no where near 100%

So right now, I'm thinking

4 x Festivum
2 x Blue Acara
2 x Firemouth

Since the exact same advice was posted twice, word for word

6 x Festivum
2 x Blue Acara
2 x Firemouth

I stopped by the pet store I've been doing my ordering from, and they only have in store, "assorted cichlids" which there was 2 very small Firemouths, the other's he was going to have to try and order. He was pretty excited about it, and seemed pretty good at picking out what they assortment was for the most part.

Also, something that came up, aqadvisor didn't have a problem with a common pleco being in the tank other then it would out grow the tank eventually. However, my mom has a common pleco that's out growing her tank. So I was thinking of taking it on.... whacha think? It's pretty big (6" or so)
