 Saadali,
 
 I  would  look  at  it  this  way!
 
 First  think  about  algae  eaters.  You  will  need  the  algae  crew  in  place,  if  you  want  your  tank  to  be  algae  free.  I  would  suggest  AT  LEAST  6  ottocinclus.  You  could  also  keep  one  Siamese  algae  eater.
 
 Then,  look  at  the  bottom  dwellers.  I  would  like  to  add  a  nice  shoal  of  corydoras.  You  can  have  4  sterbai,  4  julii,  4  albino,  and  4  bronze/green  corydoras.  Cories  help  water  circulation  near  the  substrate,  eat  up  uneaten  food  that  hits  the  floor,  and  also  scavenge  at  times.  They  do  a  lil  but  of  turning  your  substrate.  A  very  little  bit  indeed!  But  very  interesting  fellows!
 
 Next  you  could  add  some  nice  tetras.  I  would  vouch  anyday  for  cardinal  tetras,  and  rummy  nose  only.  These  are  fabulous  display  fish,  shoal  well,  and  for  your  size  tank,  I  would  introduce  40  cardinals  alone,  or  24  cardinals  and  24  rummy  nose  if  I  plan  to  keep  both.
 
 For  the  surface,  I  would  introduce  some  hatchet  fish.  They  jump  like  crazy,  so  keep  the  tank  nicely  covered  if  you  wanna  keep  hatchets.  You  could  also  keep  halfbeaks.  Both  hatchets  abd  halfbeaks  stay  only  at  the  surface,  look  very  very  very  interesting,  as  they  have  an  unusual  shape.
 
 Thats  my  opinion!

 I  guess  Saadali  is  in  need  of  Cichlid  compatability  chart    Very Happy  
 I  would  love  to  see  it  too.
 I  however  guess  it  might  not  be  too  easy  to  come  up  with  one  -  and  there  would  be  too  many  factors  to  consider  too.
 
 Anyway,  I  am  waiting  for  the  replies  Smile

 For  cichlid  communities,  check  out  the  cookie  cutter  setups  on  cichlid-forum.
 
 Here  is  an  african  cichlid  compatibility  chart  long  the  lines  of  the  community  chart.  Same  reservations  apply.
 
 There  have  been  threads  before  with  recommendations  for  CA  communities.  I'm  too  lazy  to  link  'em  Wink

 saadali,
 
 it  all  depends  on  what  you  want.    an  african  setup  will  be  colorful,  semi  aggresive,  and  quiet  active.    if  you  want  an  aggresive  cichlid  setup,  you  would  have  to  go  for  a  fewer  number  of  fishes,  but  very  active  ones.    mixing  up  new  world  and  african  setups  is  an  invitation  for  trouble  as  i  have  seen  new  worlds  happily  munching  on  africans  in  just  such  a  setup.
 
 you  have  listed  a  mix  of  different  types  of  cichlids  above.  so  please  tell  us:  what  exactly  do  you  want?

 Before  we  go  anywhere,  blood  parrots  are  a  disgrace  to  any  tank.
 
 As  to  the  other  fish,  ditch  the  cories  and  you  could  keep  one  each  of  the    other  fish.  Ideally,  keep  just  a  pair  of  oscars  or  severums.

 saadali,
 
 if  you  are  interested  in  Red  Devils,  you  can  keep  only  one  in  that  tank.    RD's  are  hyper  aggresive  and  will  dominate  or  fight  to  the  death.    therefore,  only  one  is  advisable.    you  can  also  keep  a  pair  of  convicts  with  the  RD  provided  there  is  more  than  enough  hiding  places.    i  have  kept  an  RD  with  2  pairs  of  convicts  with  a  heavy  rocky  setup  before.    there  were  a  few  problems,  but  not  too  much.
