  1. Hi all, I'm getting back into fish keeping after a couple of years off due to moving to the south island. I have a lot of experience keeping freshwater aquariums (south american and community tanks mostly). So I want to try something new. I'm thinking Lake Malawi cichlids. I have a Blue Planet Vista Aquarium (167L) with a EHEIM classic 250 external canister (in addition to the built in filter). I know this is on the small side for Africans, but I was thinking of keeping it pretty simple. I have read a lot about how to stock an African tank but most assume a massive tank. I am thinking along these lines: 2x Male Electric Yellows, 6x Females 1x Male Red Zebra 3x females 1x Male Blue Orchid 1x Male Butterfly (Freiberg) Would this work? I know mixing rock dwellers with haps/butterfly can be problematic, but I am thinking that this combination should work. Any recommendations? Am I on the right track or way off? Thanks
