I've heard of people keeping these fish in 55 and 75 gallon tanks, but some say they should be kept in larger aquariums.

So, I'm confused.. do they need larger than 4ft tanks?

I actually have a 50g but I assume it's only a couple of inches difference in height. Do you have no more than 12 fish as the cookie cutter suggests?

I put in 6, started out with 2 but there was just too much aggression between the two of them. So sought some advice here, added 4 more and we've been some what peaceful since. But when I mean somewhat peaceful I mean as peaceful as African Cichlids get with each other :D

Welcome!

Lemme know what Acei you pick up...the yellow tail (which is a purplish body with tail fins) or the ng...something, which is black body with yellow fins.

I'm really enjoying mine, and as Kim told me they do better in groups to spread out the aggression.
