Thanks Neil!!

Nice size tank! Are you considering an all male tank or would you be more interested in breeding groups? If doing breeding groups, you should only keep one species of Aulonocara or Peacock cichlids to avoid cross breeding since the females are difficult if not impossible to tell apart from each other.

Are there any particular species that you really like or want to stock?

If you go all-male you want one of each an no look-alikes.
