I recently became more active too. I was one of the first in the midwest USA back in the late 1960's to breed mbuna. Welcome back.

Your options with Tanganyikan cichlids are wide open with your tank sizes. I have spawned this past year J. transcriptus "Bemba", N. helianthus and N. leleupi in tanks no bigger than 30 USgal. If you like a show tank I think some of the N. brichardi complex, particularly with the long fin species and either white or black A. calvus would be striking. They are so different that they "get along" and compliment each other.

I have had and bred new world and African cichlids and I really enjoy my Tanganyikans because I like substrate spawners and don't have space for the larger Central and South Americans.
