What kind of cichlids? Makes me think haps and peacocks.

Yes, looking to do Peacocks and Haps. Just need to cycle the tank first then stock it up. I'm in the cycling phase now.

I am not fond of plants, myself, but I think your tank looks great.

Any chance you could send me a PM with details on where you bought the background?

Hope you are doing mixed gender with 1m:4f of each?

I'm thinking about that. May start with young juveniles and see what I get. Haven't ever bred fish before so I'll have to research up on that.

If you are doing mixed gender, know that only males become colorful.

Also one species of peacock/tank since they crossbreed.

You will need a rehoming plan.

A challenging tank for anyone. You still need a rehoming plan, and extra tanks. Read the Cichlid-forum Library about all-male tanks for pros and cons. Plan to tinker with the mix for the first two years or so until you achieve peace and have most of the fish coloring up.

You may find you are better off buying adult males so they can be reliably sexed.
