What are the dimensions of the tank? I would want 36" for paracyps and 48" for "regular" non-jumbo cyprichromis.
125G Borleyi, Maleri, Astatotilapia, Multipunctata
75G Demasoni, Maingano, Msobo, Lucipinnis
75G Calvus, Caudopunctatus, Petricola
55G Chrysonotus; 38G Demasoni
33G Hara; 33G Kwanga; 33G Maingano; 33G Cobue

Yea its just 24 inches so cyps prolly not a good idea, but what about the julies, ornatus or gombi maybe?

The shape of the tank is just too limiting to add any other cichlids. Perhaps just some dither fish to swim around the top.
