    I am based in Perth Australia, and want to learn more about the African Cichlids,and thought what better place to start that In Sunny South Africa.
    My name is Nicholas , I am 15 years old, was born in Joburg and have live in Oz for the last 10 years. I have just bought myself a new 6 foot x 2,5 foot tank and am busy cycling that tank. What suggestions do you have for stocking this tank?
    The fish I have though of stocking my 6 footer with, are as follows

    15x Electric Blues ( Sciaenochromis fryeri )
    15x Electric Yellows ( Labidochromis )
    15x Mainganos ( Melanochromis maingano )
    15x Crimson Tides ( Astatotilapia latifasciata )
    10x Ps.Acei Ngara ( Pseudotropheus sp. acei "Ngara)
    8x cuckoo catfish ( Synodontis multipunctatus )

    I also have a 2 foot malawi tank with an electric yellow breeding colony,and one gold spot pleco.
    I also have a 3 foot south american display tank with 2 green severums,4 gold severums,4 blue rams,3 red phantom tetras,4 black phantom tetras,4 bleeding heart tetras,1 convict cichlid and 1 common pleco.

    Finally is there a good,reliable and professional tropical fish exporter?

    Thanks Nick
    Ps sorry for the long post.

    These are pics of my tanks

    Pic 1 is my display tank with my Green and Golden Severums and my tetras and Blue rams

    Pic 2 is my new 6 foot tank that is in progress, water is still cycling

    Pic 3 is my Electic Yellow colony, there are actually 11 in this tank, but they are camera shy. That white gravel must go:evil: its aweful stuff to try and keep clean. As soon as the 6 footer is ready, I want to either put playsand in there or black Tahitian Moon Sand which is pitch black.

    Sorry the pics are not great, I need to get my Moms camera!!!.

    Yeah fake plants are way easier than real,because they dont become an expensive
    salad for your fish.
