Hey there I just got given a 38G aquarium with everything included and I dont know what fish I want to put in it .... I want to go cichlid but I dont know what I want to do! I like alot of colour and I know that haps are good for that but I also Love mbuna .... What do you guys suggest for that size of aquarium oh by the way the measurements are 36 1/4 x12 5/8 x19 3/4

Thanks everyone

36" is too small for haps, maybe get some peacocks. For that size tank, you have more options if you go with fish from lake tanganyika.

A species tank with a nice group of Pseudotropheus saulosi would bring a lot of color into that tank. For most Malawis a 4' tank is recommended. If you try a 3' tank, you should definitely have alternatives ready in case something goes wrong. In other words, most Malawi cichlids should not be kept in a 3' tank if that is your only tank.
