Coming to a reputable forum chalked full of experienced fishkeepers is a very good start. I do recommend however TONS more research. The notion of 25 mixed varieties is flat wrong right off the bat. There are plenty of species that wont fit into a 90g by themselves let alone with a pile of others. Goldfish don't mix with South or Central American cichlids. Your tank setup, while visually appealing, has a large percentage the useable swimspace taken up with deco. Not really cichlid friendly, except possibly dwarf species or smaller Africans. You need to ensure cycle is complete. That's zero ammonia and nitrite and some showing of nitrate. Measure these parameters with a liquid test kit. API freshwater kit is most trusted.

Good advice Oscar. This is another example why fish forums are so valuable.

If you want to keep that large decoration, I'd look at some of the smaller species. Add some limited rockwork. Maybe some plants. Bolivian Rams, Keyholes, B. Cupido. If you changeup the wood work, look at some of the Geophagus
