We have a stunning mix of relatively peaceful African Chiclids that can all co-exist fine.
These cichlids like hard alkaline water around 76-82 degrees, although they will tolerate slightly higher or lower temperatures. Some salt may be added but they do fine without. They prefer a sandy to rocky habitat and caves should be included.
