i don't think you will have much success with this one rick....the africans will tear them up...
keep in mind the natural habitat of most of the rift lake cichlids....." no plants "
but what you do want to do is promote some good algae growth on your rocks so the fish can feed in a natural way...
I have to add more rocks but I have to have some time to change the aqua scape, at the moment I added the plants by the way they are amazing, the guy has such quality stock I might just get few more from him. I am trying to break the tank down since its 100 long and I only have about 12 fish plus the 3 cats in there trying to make it an equal real estate tank. So far I have had minimum aggression.
Failure is not an Option!
