The problem is that the random assortment of cichlids in the "mixed African" tank are generally pretty hardy and colorful, but mean varieties... Melanochromis auratus, Pseudotropheus crabro, Metriaclima lombardoi - some of the most aggressive mbuna that will not work in a 29.

+1 to the fish that Fogelhund recommended. I recently set up a small tank (26 bowfront) for my sister with breeding groups of yellow labs and dwarf peacocks (maylandi). They will be good in there for a while.

You may pay a bit more in the beginning to stock the tank, but avoiding the frustration will be worth it.
