Well, yellow labs are actually African Lake Malawi cichlids, so probably won't get much info in the South American folder ;) But the tank is too small. Because labs are so peaceful (but mbuna standards only), you can get away with a trio of them in something as small as a 3ft. long tank, but your tank isn't going to work for them. They need length of a tank over height and width.

I wouldn't do labs in a 3ft, but I know others have seen success in it. You could easily do some SA/CA dwarf cichlids in a 25. Or you could do shellies (Tangs).

36" is a big improvement over 24".
