I hope all goes well and you enjoy the tank. There's quite a mix there. Keep an eye on the 'yellow with black vertical stripes Mbuna' which is a male Kenyi cichlid. I started with some of these in a 180gal with other mbuna and I'd heard they were aggressive but I was hoping my tank would be the exception. They are a handful. Hopefully you have an especially mellow individual.

Yes, I have definitely got a job cut out for me, and I am hopeful I will luck out. My acei seemed to be the tank boss until I added the dolphin. I have other tanks I’ll be able to move any problem fish to. Thank you for the ID. It was labeled as a bumblebee when I got him, but I soon realized that was misinformation.
