Today I just got a 130(18" 23" 72") of of craigslist with a stand and lid and filter. I have big plans for this tank and I want to get cichlids. I was thinking either Haps and peacocks or central and south american cichlids.

Which do you prefer? What is the pH of your tap water?

It is neutral, I can add crushed coral to make it higher if I want. If I do peacocks and haps I want something along the lines of a few different peacocks, venustus hap, electric blue hap, eye biter hap and dolphin hap. if I do central american cichlids some options I am considering are: Firemouth cichlid, blue acara, jack dempsey, rainbow cichlid, vieja, rainbow cichlid, jewel cichlid, salvini cichlid, green terror, oscar, raphael catfish.

I'd go with the CA. I've never heard of anyone with neutral water. Do you have a water treatment system?

We can see if any CA people chime in. Have you looked at the cookie cutter tanks in the Cichlid-forum Library? After a couple of days if you don't get responses you can try a post in the Central American forum.
