Guys, I am setting up a 30 G starter tank for my cichlid's.... I am new to the forum, and would like some advice on how many fish, and what specie or species I could put in a tank this size?

Any help would be great....

What are the dimensions of the tank? 30 gallon is too small for most mbuna, peacocks, and haps, but there might be a few dwarf species you could get away with. A colony of Pseudotropheus Saulosi would probably work - 1 male with 5-6 females.

Have a look at the cookie cutter section for 29gallon.
When you find something you like, post here for some advice. You can't just put anything in a 30 gallon unfortunately, I recommend some reading and research before buying fish.

Also, don't just go buy your fish. Cycle the tank first. It'll take 4-6 weeks. Ready up on the nitrogen cycle and fishless cycling, both of which can be found in the Library section here.

Jeditwin, it's too late, isn't it. What kind did you get?
