I've been thinking recently about starting a new cichlid tank. I currently have a 2 year old 29g tropical community tank with some serpae tetras, angelfish and a clown loach (need another pleco though, my last one died a couple months ago) and also have an empty 29g ready to go. What cichlids are compatible and decent for a 29g tank? I'm looking for a variety of color. My current tank is 80° with a neutral pH. What is the best pH and temp for cichlids? Do they need any freshwater salt? Should I use a bottomfeeder (pleco, etc...) in a cichlid tank? What do they feed on? Frozen, live, flake?
