New tank setup help needed

Hi everyone I was hoping I could get some advice on setting up a new tank, I have kept tropical fish many years ago but am just getting back into the hobby, I have fluval roma 200 Length 100cm x Depth 40cm x Height 55cm 44gallon and was looking into setting up the tank to keep dwarf mbuna cichlids, I am aware that I need to cycle the tank before I think about fish but I want to make sure I have the right setup for the fish before I move ahead.

Will this tank size be ok?
Which fish would you suggest for a newbie and how many? I have no interest in breeding.

Any advice would be much appreciated

The length of 39" is not ideal but it would work for a single species of Pseudotr0poheus saulosi. Try for 3m:9f. Twelve fish in that sized tank works for saulosi, but not most of the other mbuna.
