In addition to rocks, bog wood, plastic plants, etc. to break up those sight lines, set up the 100 litre aquarium with at least 3, (preferably 4) dark and snug hiding places for your two Cichlids. if you only place two caves/hiding spots in there, it will almost always result in fights over who supposedly gets the 'best' one.... :roll:
Otherwise, with just a pretty calm Rainbow Cichlid, Herotilapia multispinosa and an individual Electric blue Acara, I think this aquarium will work out. Oh, and do NOT add any more cichlids to the 100 litre tank! (Adding non-Cichlids such as Tetras, Barbs, Danios, etc... will be fine).
Perfect thank you so much for your advice I will set up plenty of hiding spots and line of sight breaks!
