thanks for the info,
600 liters translates too around 200gph whcih aint much considering the stock you want and your tank size. You might have to get a higher rated filter and you will need to step the water changes up to 40-50%.
For my mbuna 55gallon tank, I have an aquaclear 110 and an xp2 canister with a combined gph of 800 or around 3000liters per hour and i do 50% water changes weekly. My stock includes...
3 red zebra
4 yellow labs
all are between 1.5 and 3in in length. Keep this in mind when doing your tank. Yes it's good to overstock an african cichlid tank but you MUST over fliter also to compinsate for the bioload or life is going to be hell keeping that tank clean.
