    I just started my tank few days ago, after a break which was lasting for few years, but I am going to have 10-15 african cichlids in my 55gal tank.

The last ones are victorian don't know what I'm doing with them yet. I also have a 45 that those are in right now but in putting my kribensis fry in there. In my 10 I have 2 Kribs and 5 rose danios but my Kribs just had about 40 fry

    My plan is something similar to your 55, but still not sure how easy is to get nice species here in Ann Arbor,
    But for starting I am going to put 3-5 black Mollienesia for better start of nitrogen cycle.
    Considering also yellow zebra (mbuna) but they are quite violent.
    Will see...
