So many choices! I would start with some yellow labs for the bright color and pair them with some of the milder haps. Hap ahli males are a nice blue color that suits my eye with the yellow. I find they get along quite well. The labs love the rocks and that is okay with the ahli.

You are probably thinking of some of the larger haps. I find the smaller ones work quite well. Hap ahli are one that I like for small size. It's all part of the name swapping confusion. Technically the name is Sciaenochromis fryeri (Cape Maclear) but most know them as hap around here.

I'm really stuck, so many cichlids out there, when i decide on a species of cichlid and then do some research, i find i need a bigger tank.......... :-?

I wanted Tropheus duboisi or some kind of Tropheus ?

You might be able to try duboise, I think most other tropheus need more room. For duboise I would start with 8-10, or for more options from tanganyika, look at lamprologous, altolamp, neolamp, and julidochromis species. Almost all of them are suitable for your size tank.

Thats Iod... and yes, those guys would work fine in that tank. You could probably grab a colony of Ps. saulosi if you wanted some additional color, too. 7 rusty's, 3m:8f saulosi.
