I got this beautiful 75 gallon aquarium from Larry, who did not have room for it anymore.  I got it set up and hope to add more fish to it soon.  Right now there is a single Labidochromis caeruleus in there, but I don’t think it’s visible.  Reading up on optimum cichlid population density, it looks like I’ll be able to fit about 25-28 average size fish in there.  Because of the African Cichlids’ behavior patterns, it is better to have a high population density to minimize aggressiveness.  I intend to go with Lake Malawi cichlids.  In the past I had mostly Mbuna type fish from that lake but I may go with a different sort this time.  The Mbuna tend to be a bit more aggressive and root up plants and such.
